This article sketches the prevailing sense of moral crisis with reference to the film Code Unknown. Following this cultural diagnosis, it analyses three responses to such a sense of moral crisis and suggests that an ethos of hospitality is necessary for the sake of public morality. It concludes by offering an analysis of five dimensions that may be identified with reference to such an ethos of hospitality.
