The back-to-back religious-themed projects have left the actor with a new perspective on faith.The implications are shuddering for that branch of faith: Without hell, everyone is saved, regardless of belief or behavior. There's no need to go to church at all.Viewers watch the anguish that Pearson endures, caught between church doctrine and his own beliefs.Ejiofor, who has played everything from Mordo in "Doctor Strange" to an astronaut in "The Martian" spent time getting to know Pearson during a visit to Tulsa, flying there right after his work on "Mary Magdalene".The final film is melancholy and moody, often capturing the actors in stillness and reflection. It's an adult movie about big ideas that's not interested in pandering or ridiculing religious viewers.
