A friendly chat about the movie Soul, with Pippa Evans, Mark Vernon, and Jonathan Rowson.
Does Pixar’s latest movie have a message we should ‘get’, or is the most important thing to get about the movie that there is really nothing to get?
In what way might it place our plans for our lives in perspective?
Does it make it any clearer what ‘the soul’ is?
