Here’s a new movie trailer to check out.

The publicist for this new movie states: “We are so excited to bring Gods message of forgiveness, love and redemption through There Be Dragons to such a large audience and we hope that you will help us get the word out. I think you will agree that it is quite amazing that an Oscar nominated director (who describes himself as agnostic) has taken on a faith based film with a huge Hollywood budget.”

About There Be Dragons

There Be Dragons follows the story of controversial Opus Dei founder, St. Josemaría Escrivá de Balaguer, in a sympathetic portrayal of the Catholic organization, bravely contradicting the sentiment set by Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code. In this action-packed film, Director Roland Joffe surrounds the priest with fictional characters and deals with universal themes of love, betrayal and redemption.

Tthe film begins when a young journalist begins investigating his estranged father’s relationship with Escrivá during the tumultuous times of the Spanish Civil War and uncovers a compelling drama of the two men’s complicated lives and the dark secrets of his family’s past.

Faced with the hardships and injustices that are tearing Spain apart, these two friend’s paths diverge when one pursues a life of faith and the other is swept into the brutality and horror of the Spanish Civil War.

As personal and national battles rage, the characters’ lives collide and their deepest struggles are illuminated. Only then can they face the ultimate choices that will result in tragedy or triumph, and a chance for final redemption.

There Be Dragons reveals the importance and timeless power of forgiveness in a story of loss between a father and son, of revolutionaries fighting for (something … what is it?).
