The book in which this article appears deals with questions of rehabilitation and release in the context of ‘life after punishment’. I supply a methodological angle, helping fine tune the debate over how the language of redemption, often used in such criminological contexts, has a theological root and not necessarily one that fits with its usage in more secular contexts. But, I demonstrate how the work I have been doing over the past decade with film can be further applied to criminology, thereby fostering interdisciplinary engagement between discrete subject areas
