In our house Netflix is most definitely Josh’s domain and I rarely watch anything without him. So we watched Babies together.
I loved it. I wholeheartedly recommend it with only two caveats:
It is about as exciting as Into Great Silence. Which is to say, not really exciting at all. It is wonderful and beautiful, but c’mon, it does not have a plot at all… other than the deepest meaning of life and all that.
It features breasts, the source of babies’ food. It is a great example of the sort of Catholic modesty which John Paul II promoted, but if you subscribe to the American form of “objective” standards of modesty where breasts are seen primarily as objects of sexual pleasure, then several parts of Babies will be offensive.
Have you seen Babies? What did you think of it?
