Good for what it does cover of St. Dominic's life. However, so much was left out! By the end I wad saying, he can't be dying yet because there is so much more to the story. I felt like they started well but then ran out of time / money and had to finish prematurely. The movie does capture 3 things well: the charism of evangelical poverty, the need for an order of preachers and the war that broke out in France because of the heresy. I would not recommend this movie for those that know little of the life of St. Dominic. It does convey a spiritual sense about Dominic's love for the poor and his dedication to the mission, so it is worth watching from that standpoint. Oh, and it did inspire my 10 year old son to read the Gospel of St. Matthew.
