Not as a Stranger: Rooting for the Home Team in "Invictus" and "The Infidel"
Multicultural Perspectives, v13 n1 p23-26 2011
Two recent movies, "Invictus" and "The Infidel," concern finding ways to negotiate coexistence between intensely opposed subcultures and are used to expand the meaning of multiculturalism. New, emergent cultures that are universalistic, practical, and accommodative are among the many cultures that are given place amid the diversity of modern complex societies. Although purity of culture is often held up as a goal, the blending of cultures in search of daily survival and convenience remains valuable to modern people looking to define their identities.
