Indiana student hits big screen as son in 'Noah'


The world is debating "Noah" with a polarizing pre-release buzz reminiscent of that for "Passion of the Christ."

Early screenings reportedly left some religious-minded viewers disappointed, including conservative radio host Glenn Beck, who called the film the "Babylonian Chainsaw Massacre." This week, Indonesia banned any showing of the film in the predominantly Muslim nation, citing "Noah" as a "violation of Islamic law."

But according to Time magazine, prominent Christian leaders say the retelling stays true to the Bible, with Focus on the Family President Jim Daly saying the film "gives Christians a great opportunity to engage our culture with the biblical Noah."

And last week, during a private meeting in Rome, Crowe and "Noah" reportedly received Pope Francis' personal blessing.

Around the McHugh Carroll home in Grand Beach, there is no controversy.

"For them," Vicki McHugh says of her boys, "when they go and do something like this, they're aware of how incredibly special this is."
