Series: Movie Discussion Guide Bible Study
A story of adventure and imagination.
Big Fish takes us into the vivid imagination of Edward Bloom, who shares his life through captivating and far-fetched stories. This movie reminds us of the power of stories to hide and to reveal, to distance ourselves from others, and to inspire people to greatness.
Use this discussion guide to look more deeply at the themes of this movie. What does the film say about the tension between reality and imagination? Can we go too far with our storytelling and lose touch with the truth? How can we say things through stories that we couldn t otherwise communicate? And what happens when we remove fear from our lives?
