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. Written by
I saw a screening of the movie a few weeks ago... to date, it continues to come back to me through out the day. It has left me thinking so much about my life, relationships, Love, my beliefs, my work, etc. There are so many layers to this movie... It's not a movie for the superficial or those who just want to be entertained over popcorn and then move on to their next thriller. It's a deep movie that engages the mind and heart, hopefully engaging the viewer to think of the morally pivotal moments in life and the choices made. I think there is a little bit of a Manolo in each of our lives... something each one of us needs to come to terns with. Hopefully, as with Manolo, there is a Josemaria in each of our paths. I highly recommend this movie! It's a movie you can't just see once!
