Our Favorite Spiritual Movies


Eat Pray Love 

This 2010 movie has been enjoying unbroken popularity ever since it’s release. The story is based on Elizabeth Gilbert’s autobiographical novel. Liz, played by Julia Roberts, has everything – a loving husband, a great career, and a beautiful house. One day, however, she realizes that she is deeply unhappy inside. Unfortunately she does not know what she wants, just what she doesn’t want.

After she divorces her husband, she decides to spend a year finding herself. She spends several months in Italy to learn Italian, where she enjoys the country’s culinary pleasures and makes new friends. Afterwards she travels to India, where she tries to find inner peace through meditation. Eventually, she travels to Bali to learn from a medicine man and also to find love, which brings the long desired balance to her life.

HIs marriage being almost completely ruined through it, he feels lost and doesn’t know what to do.

The Man from Earth

The whole movie takes place in a single room. It is a great and thoughtful story about human’s search for meaning, loneliness and immortality. John Oldman, a professor of history unexpectedly announces that he is moving and leaving the university he has been working for. Before leaving the city, his colleagues visit his home to find out why he is leaving and to bid their farewells. While movers are taking John’s last furniture and whiskey bottles are emptied, a long, highly philosophical conversation unfolds, during which John confesses something incredible to his friends.

A movie consisting of just one single conversation may seem boring at first, but trust us, you soon will closely follow every word spoken. Raising more than one existential question this movie will give you plenty to think about. This one definitely ranks on top of the list of our favorite spiritual movies!

The Beginning of the Future

Can a single little boy save the whole world? Elementary school student Trevor took his homework very seriously: to come up with a fantastic plan on how to fill people’s hearts with love and kindness. A thought-provoking and inspirational movie. It is a bit emotional, so for sensitive souls we recommend to have some tissues ready.

Bonus Movies (not just) for Kids


Inside Out

Like all Pixar movies, this gem from 2015 is not just for children. Set mainly in 11-year old Riley’s head, we watch her 5 personified emotions guiding her through the day. We can learn a lot about the functioning of our subconsciousness and inside voices, the “islands of personality” and the functioning of our feelings. It is a nice story, perfect for a family movie night.
