Signs of Faith

Mel Gibson has a close encounter with God -- or just a mean E.T.

The Reverend Graham Hess (Mel Gibson) has lost his wife and his faith, and now aliens are beating down his door.

Not to spoil anything -- because however you choose to interpret Signs, you wind up at precisely the same point -- but it's possible that this "invasion" is Graham's way of working out his relationship with God, his kids, his brother, his dead wife and the man who accidentally killed her. Shyamalan suggests throughout that to hate God is at least to acknowledge the existence of a higher power. In Signs, something comes from above, only it may not be little green men, just a Big Guy who doesn't need spaceships to make contact.
