Publisher's Description

A dark comedy about character, justice, and the good life.


The Ladykillers is a dark comedy set in sleepy Saucier, Mississippi, deep in the Bible Belt, where the forces of good and evil meet. The villainous professor Goldthwait Dorr masterminds a riverboat casino heist, and the pious widow Marva Munson unwittingly plays host and foil to the con artist and his dimwitted henchmen.

This study guide will help you discuss the deeper themes of the movie. What does this film say about how God intervenes in our lives? How does it portray the church and Christian worship? What impact do our habits of thought and lifestyle have on our character? How do we find true joy? And how is justice delivered in this world?
