This month two movies come out that touch on the topic of sex addiction and pornography. One is called “Thank You For Sharing” and one is called “Don Jon”.
I got to see “Thank Your For Sharing” last week and wanted to write about it.
We don’t review movies on a weekly basis from a christian perspective and tell you what you should see and not see.
In fact, I think the last time I talked about a movie was the film Shame, which I posted about here.
The film is R rated because of language and probably the two sex scenes in the film. So, if that is a deal breaker for you, you have been warned.
I liked the film. It was a pretty light even though it covers a serious topic. The whole movie revolves around a group of people at a SA group. The movie nails the point that you need community and you cant do this on your own.
Some of my favorite lines from the film
“Its like quitting crack while the pipe is attached to your body.”
“You think I like not having a TV or computer it blows but it’s saving my life.”
“You have to do the work.”
“Not an excuse it’s a disease.”
I also loved Alecia Moore in it who you might know of as P!NK. The film might be an eye opener to a lot of people that don’t understand that serious nature of this kind of addiction. You see men and women in the SA group throughout the film that are fighting to overcome this.
Here is a clip from the film. It opens nationwide this Friday.
