Young David (played by Ben Tibber) has grown up in the camp with little knowledge about the outside world and scant remembrance of his family. Everything he knows about life he has learned from a kind fellow prisoner, played by Jim Caviezel. When David is helped to escape, he is handed a mysterious letter that launches him on a journey that will ultimately lead to the discovery of his own identity.
There are so many powerful themes in this film--including courage, trust, and forgiveness. The film also stars the wonderful Joan Plowright.
Please join us Friday evening beginning at 6:30.

The story centers around Lewis's relationship with Joy Gresham, an American writer with whom he falls in love. Debra Winger portrays the vivacious Joy, who shortly after her marriage to Lewis is diagnosed with cancer. Lewis, a middle-aged academic who never expected to experience romantic love, now struggles with heartbreaking reality as his happiness with Joy is cruelly cut short. His faith--which has been an anchor for him since his well-known conversion--is understandably tested at its core.
Both Hopkins and Winger are superb in their roles as persons deeply challenged by life circumstances yet who undergo profound personal and spiritual transformation.
This is a beautiful story and one sure to spark a wonderful discussion about suffering and love and the real meaning of faith. Hope to see you here!

For those of you who have not yet had an opportunity to view Romero, it is an incredibly powerful story of the Salvadoran archbishop who was assassinated in 1980. The film is an exceptional portrayal of a man of the Church who initially appears unassuming, certainly uninterested in upsetting the status quo within his country. Gradually, however, he is transformed into a passionate pastor who cannot remain silent in the face of the suffering of his people. This quiet, gentle, and humble man decides to cast personal safety aside in publicly defending the rights of the poor and marginalized in San Salvador. His witness to the gospel ultimately costs him his life.
Romero was the first feature film of Paulist Pictures. It features Raul Julia in a starring role you will never forget. Please join us for an inspiring evening.
