Heartland: Forgiveness in "Columbus," "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri," and "Lady Bird"
Multicultural Perspectives, v20 n2 p92-95 2018
Recent movies have used the familiar conventions of classic revenge movies, but the former have avoided the latter's grim resolutions in favor of a wiser, more forgiving attitude toward those who have offended the wronged. This unconventional change in a familiar story line points to the contrast between the pleasure of vicarious vindictiveness and the more thoughtful approach that we prefer in real life.
