Redeeming Mr. White: Forgiveness in Breaking Bad from a Christian perspective

Enochsson, Marcus LU (2017) FIVK01 20162
Film Studies
Abstract
This thesis offers an analysis of how Breaking Bad's anti-hero Walter White can be viewed through the lens of forgiveness within Christian theology. The theories used for the theological approach are those presented by Magnus Abrahamson (Th. D), Desmond and Mpho Tutu, and Per Arne Dahl. The first part of this thesis provides the reader with an overview of what the aforementioned authors communicate in their books, and explores forgiveness from mainly a theological perspective. Following that is an analysis in which this theological perspective is applied to the character of Walter White. A conclusion is then reached, which states that if Walter White were a real person, he would not be unforgivable — contrary to popular belief.
