Faith Review – Gran Torino (2008)
Walt is a retired Korean war veteran and a recent widower. His neighborhood has deteriorated, crime has spread, and Walt is caught in the middle of it, confronted with an Asian gang in the neighborhood. One of teenage boys, seeking initiation in the gang, tries to steel his prized 1972 Gran Torino. Walt thwarts the effort, but eventually comes to help the boy pursue a better path. In this faith review by Jonathan Davis, discussion questions are included, involving themes of forgiveness, reconciliation, race relations, and community.
