Reviewer unimpressed with There Be Dragons
May 09, 2011
Many members of Opus Dei are delighted with the favorable portrayal of their founder, St. Josemaria Escriva, in a newly released major film, There Be Dragons.

Greydanus finds the film "muddled" in its portrayal of St. Josemaria; opaque in its treatment of the historical background, the Spanish Civil War; and uninformative about Opus Dei.
