Geena Davis and Tom Hanks in A League of Their Personal
On opening day of the 2019 baseball season, Adam and Matt welcome Kathryn Reklis to the Sunday Morning Matinee to speak about Penny Marshall’s 1992 film A League of Their Personal. In the very first segment, the conversation explores the theological and social themes of A League of Their Personal, noting the methods in which the motivation and desires of Dottie, the protagonist, stay elusive and curious. In the second segment, Preaching to the Choir, the discussion turns to the intersections of the film with the lectionary passages for the fifth week in Lent, Year C, April 7. Ultimately, in the final segment, Postludes, Matt talks about robots and Adam talks about kilts. Assistance the war work and come and listen!
Kathryn Reklis is a theology professor at Fordham University and the typical media columnist for the Christian Century.
