Reviewer unimpressed with There Be Dragons
CWN - 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. But reviewer Steven Greydanus, writing in the National Catholic Register, is not enthusiastic. 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.
An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
