When our world becomes too much to bear, art has always been the default that many people turn to. Whether for distraction, entertainment, or enlightenment, art—and good art, at that—provokes emotion. A brilliant film, TV series, or Netflix binge can bring groups of people together in conversation. Through that conversation, sometimes our spirits click and our humanity becomes more connected, more understanding, and maybe, in the most remarkable cases, a bit more open to others who don’t look like us, love like us, or pray like us.
