Faith In Clouds
Clouds isn’t an extremely religious movie, but religion plays a role in the movie and Zach’s real life. In an interview with The Catholic Spirit, Zach’s mother Laura discusses the importance of religion in his life and that she wanted it to play a role in this movie. Also in Twin Cities’ article, it mentions how Zach attended church in the morning and the Lourdes trip.
The Lourdes trip is a brief moment in the movie, but it’s shown as a sort-of spiritual awakening for Zach in that it makes him even more committed to his music. The family spent 10 days in Europe traveling to Rome, Lures, and Paris. Lourdes is believed to be a place with healing powers because the legend has it that the Virgin Mary appeared there in 1858.
