A young journalist long ago rejected by his now aged and dying father finds himself investigating one of his father's former friends, a candidate for canonization. Uncovering the two men's complicated relationship from childhood through the horrors of the Spanish Civil War unveils a compelling drama filled with passion, betrayal, love and religion. An action packed story set during a murderous time in history that ultimately serves the present by revealing the importance and timeless power of forgiveness.
This is one of those movies that pretty much plays in just one theatre per area and for a very short time. This is only running in my area for a week and only in one theatre. My mom and I will be going to the very last showing here on Friday. I am sooooo looking forward to seeing this. Usually when a movie is hyped as much as this has been on our Catholic radio station, it ends up being one of my favorites. Like The Passion of the Christ, Fireproof, and Therèse. I'll be sure to let everyone know my thoughts on it!
The theatre that's showing this has decided to extend the showing for another week. Now my mom and I don't have to see a super-late show tonite. We're gonna go Sunday evening for a 6:45 show. And now my brother should be able to go, too. This does kind of take away the thrill of seeing the last-chance showing, though.
