"All my life I am a born-again!"

I took a huge gulp of water after I heard that.

Unfortunately, that's the first line you'll hear in the movie Saved. I couldn't have chosen a better movie! Dang! So shameful of me. He wanted to watch Bourne Supremacy but I insisted on watching Saved. With the difference in spiritual beliefs hanging above us like plague, the least I wanted was a reminder of THAT. The movie hit hard since it's ALL about the norms and lifestyle of Christian girls, their families, and their path to holiness. As if I want to be reminded! He acted as a true gentleman and did not mention anything about it. But still.

"Good girl" Mary (Jena Malone) and her popular, influential best friend, Hilary Faye (Mandy Moore), are starting their senior year at the top of the social structure at American Christian High School. But when Mary finds out she’s pregnant, Hilary Faye and her devoted "disciples" turn against Mary and the school labels her an outcast. It's as an outsider, however, that Mary finds true friends – other students the school doesn't quite know what to do with. In this sweetly subversive comedy, a group of strangers band together to navigate the treacherous halls of high school and make it to graduation, ultimately learning more about themselves and finding out what it truly means to be Saved!.

"Love ko na sya?!"
