Storyline

Joan d'Arc (Leelee Sobieski) is born in 1412 in the village of Domrémy in the war zone of Northern France. During her youth, she often witnesses the horrors of war, but her spirit is kept high by the legend of the Maiden of Lorraine. This says that a young maiden one day will unite the divided country and lead the people to freedom. When eleven-years-old, she starts hearing voices from Saint Catherine and Archangel Michael. Through them, she is commissioned by God to go to Prince Charles (Neil Patrick Harris) in Chinon, to convince him to become the King of France, and drive the English occupants away. Charles thinks that Joan could be the catalyst that animates his disheartened troops. He commissions her to lead the army together with Captain La Hire (Peter Strauss). After their victory at Orléans, Joan participates in the coronation of Charles in Reims. Bishop Pierre Cauchon (Peter O'Toole) accuses her of heresy, and is relocated to Northern France, where he associates with the ... Written by Maths Jesperson {maths.jesperson1@comhem.se}

A challenging role
26 April 2003 | by Big Neil-2See all my reviews

Joan is perhaps the most female difficult role to cast. The actress must be attractive but not conventionally alluring; magnetic but not intellectual; a towering figure but physically slight. You must understand why people would die for her. Above all, the performer must convey an authentic sense of religious piety, a virtual impossibility for young actors today. Sandrine Bonnaire--a wonderful star in every other respect--tried her hand in the recent French version but was too sexy for the part.

As Joan, Sobieski juggles the disparate requirements astonishingly well. This is emphatically not the kind of movie in which the actress can merely show up and look decorative; you have to work at it, but as Sobieski revealed in Uprising, she has the capacity for challenging period roles. And that also means that in contrast to her female peers in the business, she has a long professional future.

Watch out for O'Toole in an astonishing performance as a Cardinal who gradually realizes that Joan is the real thing.

The culminating scene--no details provided, you must see it yourself--is curiously uplifting and properly theological rather than merely unpleasant.
