The movie Noah isn’t the first time this story’s been adapted…

by Mr. Sheehy

But this is tremendously effective for an adaptation—especially for those of us who have heard the story our entire lives and grew up singing about the Lord telling Noah to build an “arky, arky” in Sunday School. It does what good art should do: it forces us to “re-see” a story anew, to once again sit on the edge of our seats and wonder what will happen next. That’s hard to do with such a familiar story, and this is done well, while still respecting and hewing to its source material, as well as it can.
