The UK's Globe and Mail has an interesting story regarding Opus Dei's concern about how they would be portrayed in the upcoming movie version of The Da Vinci Code:
The New York hierarchy got only as far as an exchange of correspondence with Amy Pascal, chair of Sony's motion picture group (Ms. Pascal insisted Sony simply intended to put out a popcorn-popper movie that offended no one). But Father Dolan got further.
He took a trip to Hollywood and met two people whose names he'd been given by Mr. Levine, and one of them told him, "If someone gives you a lemon, make lemonade of it." And that piece of advice, said Father Dolan, altered his view of the situation.
He now saw the book and the coming film as a wonderful opportunity to talk to people about Opus Dei and explain what it really is about, and let them meet a real human being who belongs to the organization.
Wonder whether we'll be hearing the same sentiments after the movie is released?
