There Be Dragons

Hopefully, coming to a theatre near you.

There's an inspiring movie opening on the weekend of May 6-8. The story follows the life of St. JosemarĂ­a Escrivá and his contemporaries during the Spanish Civil War. It’s a powerful film about war, tragedy, love and redemption, directed by Roland Joffe (The Mission, The Killing Fields). Set during the turmoil of the Spanish Civil War (early 1900s), There Be Dragons tells the story of two childhood friends who find themselves on opposite sides as war erupts.

One chooses the path of peace and becomes a priest while the other chooses the life of a soldier driven by jealousy and revenge. Each will struggle to find the power of forgiveness over the forces that tore their lives and friendship apart. 

Here in Fredericksburg, and in many cities around the U.S., folks are working to make sure the public gets to see this movie. Locally, a full buy-out for one showing has been arranged, but we want the whole opening weekend to be successful. Help spread the word so more people can share in the important message this film provides. Contact your local theatre. Encourage the manager to play There Be Dragons. Let them know you’ll bring people to see the movie if they book the film.
