“This Side of Eden,” which premiered Palm Sunday on Canada’s Salt + Light Television, has gotten great reviews, and viewers around the world have more chances to watch the documentary about the monks of Westminster Abbey in British Columbia. News flash: Not all of the monks are old!
Father Raymond J. de Souza, writing in Toronto’s The Catholic Register, called it “another Salt + Light gem” and said, “The producers have captured more than just what the monks do, but something of who they are.”
Also in The Catholic Register, writer Michael Swan said, “Filmmakers wanted people to feel the connection between liturgy and life at the abbey.”
