Pope’s new movie premiers Friday


#1

Pope Francis’ new movie is due to begin showing at movie theaters Friday.
I forget the title of the movie, but I did see a story about the movie on CBS’ 60 Minutes program last Sunday.
I plan to see the movie. Ho about you, my brothers and sisters, on the CAF message board? Do you plan to see the movie?


#2

“Pope Francis: A Man of His Word”.

I saw a preview for it when I saw “Paul: Apostle of Christ”. I’ll be going next Tuesday because our movies are half price here then. I can’t wait to see it!


#3

I want to see Paul: Apostle of Christ. The previews looked wonderful!


#4

It was amazing. Be ready with the Kleenex at the end. If the ending doesn’t get you nothing will.


#5

Thanks for the heads up. It does not take much to touch my heart.


#6

I’ll say this: it’ll get you but it is PERFECT. It’s likely the most appropriate ending I’ve ever seen. I sat there with my hand over my mouth and tears in my eyes. No drama.


#7

I look forward to seeing both movies.
I am a fan of Jim Caviezel. I believe he plays the role of Saint Luke in the movie Paul, Apostle of Christ.


#8

The movie doesn’t premiere in my area

Sad


#9

Wim Wenders is a legendary film director – I do believe some of his films are on the Vatican’s film list (like “Wings of Desire”). He’s one of the giants of German cinema – really hope I can see the movie in theaters. I may be NY & LA only for now, IIRC.


#10

I look forward to seeing how Wenders captures the Pope in his film.


#11

I reckon I’ll throw down some dollars to see it in the theater and support the Pope.

Is the Vatican getting a cut of the profits?


#12

Hopefully! :pray::angel::sweat_smile:


#13

I’ll wait til it comes to DVD like I do everything else.


#14

I very much enjoyed seeing the film! There were a few scenes in black and white which portrayed St. Francis of Assisi. I wonder if those were from some old movie, or made just for this film?


#15

I have not had a chance to see the movie, but my plans are to see it as soon as possible. :pray:
