The Da Vinci Code


Based on Dan Brown's best-selling novel of the same name, this controversial film kicks off with a murder in The Louvre, Paris. An American expert is called in, and working together with a French cryptologist, begins to track down the mysterious clues left at the scene. What they find could overturn 2000 years of accepted doctrine. Note: this film challenges several tenets of the Christian faith, so don't go if you will find that offensive.
