Friends in Film


Walk the red carpet to see how Quakers have been portrayed in the movies. 

 

How has Hollywood portrayed Quakers over the last century? Sometimes well, sometimes poorly, and sometimes totally incorrectly! In this short survey of films, you will see well-known examples of Friends in film, like “Friendly Persuasion,” practically unknown films, like “Down to the Sea in Ships”, and others that you may be familiar with, but didn’t recognize a Quaker connection. What do you think of each one? Two thumbs up?
