Do Angels Walk Among Us?

+5
Meg Ryan plays Maggie, a heart surgeon who grieves over the loss of one of her patients--while Nicholas Cage plays an angel named Seth who shows up to comfort her. Somehow, Maggie is able to see Seth, despite the "rule" that angels are invisible. They fall in love, and Cage must choose between angelic mortality or a human life with Maggie.

The view of the multitude of angels that walk the Earth among humanity is profoundly moving (both philosophically and cinematically)--as are the powerful emotions evoked in this film: grief, love, joy, wonderment...it's all there.

Some great mystical themes in City of Angels include the role and presence of angels, how humans may be guided by an unseen Force, and the transcendent power of love.
