which seems like a LONG time ago, we had a nice soirée crêpes with tabletalkbibletime about the issues raised by the film Fifty Shades of Grey.
We didn't discuss the acting, the script, the cinematography, or anything like that, but we did discuss issues of abuse, consent, love, etc., and during my preparation for animating this discussion I found a quote that I now can't refind...
But that said that the underlying theme of Fifty Shades of Grey and of Twilight, of which it is fan-lit, is the desire to be loved by someone awesome.
When you think about it this is a pretty constant theme in Disney, too.
And it is the huge central theme of the gospel.
We are just so totally loved by someone just utterly awesome!
