What are the best movies to watch during Holy Week?

Riro - Contributor

Watching a movie surely can't be the best way to profess your faith, right? However, when you've got a handful of flicks that can help you reflect this Holy Week, why won't you give it a shot? For Catholics, or for even those who aren't, entertainment platforms can't always be considered vehicles that promote good values. When all you see in staple mainstream TV shows are violence and taboo, the Lenten season can give you a much-needed break to clear your mind off these things. But, what is it in a movie that exactly makes it something good for your faith? Well, it doesn't necessarily need to contain stories of saints or be filled with biblical dialogues. Probably, a story that reminds you to live your life well everyday is enough. If you're planning to go on a whole week stretch of meaningful movies that would last until Easter, why not scroll down and see some of the best movies you can watch during Holy Week?
