Joseph C. Phillips,
"The Displaced Person" is a powerful film with unending symbolism,metaphors, imagery, and just a very intriguing story. The story does well in contemporary issues because it deals with racism, spirituality, religious hypocrisy, individual freedom and, last but not least, immigration.
In today's debate over immigration policy, "The Displaced Person" fits perfectly in how we treat our fellow man.
In today's debate over racism, just how well do we accept other ethnicities that may be a bit different than our own?
IN today's debate over spirituality and religion, just much of our so called religion and spirituality is really self preservation, and self righteousness, rather than loving and giving of oneself?
I could go on and on, but the messages borne out in this film are endless. Also, the acting is fantastic. Mrs. Shortley and Mr. shortley are two of the strangest characters you'll ever see on the screen. Mrs. McIntyre is a total hypocrite and her priest never gives up on her. The last few lines of the story still ring in my head: "Mrs. McIntyre, we now have a clearly idea of what purgatory is, don't we?"
