Sincere accurate portrayal of the birth of Protestant Christianity
This movie is an excellent character study of the Augustinian monk, Martin Luther, and his pivotal role in the political, social, economic and religious revolt against the medieval Roman Catholic Church. This revolt, which historians later called the "Reformation", and the events that precipitated it are portrayed in an amazingly accurate fashion. To those more accustomed to contemporary "historical" movies that incorporate a fair amount of fiction in their plots, this movie may seem slow moving; fact is rarely as exciting as fiction. Nevertheless for those interested in a well-directed piece of authentic Church history with outstanding character development and exceptional acting, this is the movie to see.
The Trouble with Angels (1966)
Schools like this one existed once--but no longer.
My family and I have seen this movie innumerable times. It is probably tied with The Princess Bride as our number one family-entertainment favorite. The movie depicts a sentimental view of Roman Catholicism and Catholic schools of the 50s and 60s. Schools like this one existed once--but no longer. The story is excellent and has a lesson for all ages and for both genders, while the laughs are practically nonstop. I highly recommend this film. It is often played on free TV, and should be taped and stored for many repeat viewings.
