August 2, 2016

By the Movie Lady

You can’t help but face watching a religious film with a bit of unease. Will it preach to strongly? Or make a mockery of such a delicate and powerful subject. Especially when the archeological and anthropological evidence is scant to back up the particulars of the events and people depicted.

But if you sculpt out the skeletal storyline of “The Young Messiah” without preconceived religious tenants, and experience the film in the same manner, you cannot help but recognize and enjoy a touching and beautiful film.
