Maria de Medeiros,

Good Movie, Recommend Seeing
I saw this movie today and thought it was good, with excellent acting, and location (filmed in Malta which was the place of one of Paul's journeys). The movie doesn't sugar coat the persecution the Christians of that era had to endure, shirk away from divisions within the early church community or difficult questions being asked by those living in those times. The story line drags in a few places but for the most part it is a movie worth seeing in a theater.
I saw a 5pm show and sadly there were only about 10 people at the most there, so hopefully more will attend future screenings.
