Uber-hip Brooklynites Pam and Dixon take great pride in their secular humanist approach to parenting. But when their 17-year-old daughter, Julie, decides to become a Christian, their laid-back, open-minded facade comes crashing down. Carly Mensch's Oblivion takes a wry look at Nietzsche, famed film critic Pauline Kael, and the nature of belief in the 21st century.
