This chapter analyzes the extent to which films may be said to provide 'redemption' in ways that are analogous to how religions (especially Christianity) claim to do so. Although filmic redemptions usually transpose religious notions to a secular context, this does not erase the similarities between them, and it may also point to the religious necessity of secularizing redemption - placing it in the world we know and live in. Even escapist films may provide images of transforming hope that are akin to those offered by religions, and for this reason it is essential that the dialogue between religious and filmic representations of ideas continues.
