I’m trying to identify a movie I saw years ago on a rented VCR. I can’t remember its title or any of its actors, just some of the plotline. Still, if anyone recalls its name, I’d be appreciative.
The main characters are tin miners living in medieval England. The miners, including some kids (no child labor laws then!), live wretched existences. I think some great peril threatens the community. I think it’s plague. One of the kids is a boy about twelve or thirteen who starts to experience visions of the Twentieth Century without, of course, realizing what it is. This is looked upon as some sign from God and the boy becomes the community’s hope for salvation from the threat. The boy only experiences his visions, I think, when blindfolded.
I have the impression this was a rather artsy type movie, rather than one which would have enjoyed a mass audience, though I could be wrong about that.
Does this sound familiar to anyone?
