The Sparrow movie

Having seen Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ, I am aware that not even God could get a faithful screen adaptation of His book, so what chance does a housewife from Cleveland have? Nevertheless, the studio reportedly intends to retain the religious underpinnings of The Sparrow.

Mary Doria Russell steeling herself against disappointment in the adaptation of her book The Sparrow.

Which, by the way, is a great book. Very entertaining science fiction (or is it fantasy?) and a profitable exploration of disappointment with God. (No easy answers here.)
