What really struck me about Natural Selection was that this is a film about a devoutly christian woman that doesn't belittle her for her faith. No what is does is highlight just how misogynistic Christianity is. Much of Linda's life has been negatively impacted by Christianity as her marriage is based not on love but on guilt and regret and is being further degraded by a husband that refuses to make love to her because of the belief that she cannot have children. But her faith also gives her a sweet naivety that allows her to trust Raymond, when she finds him, when she really shouldn't. But it also allows these two people to connect in refreshingly original ways.
