Man For All Seasons

[VHS Tape] (1966)
When Henry VIII's first wife, Catherine of Aragon, is unable to produce an heir to the throne, he uses that as a pretext for the pope to grant him a divorce, so he can marry his newest conquest, Anne Boleyn. The King is backed by everyone on this request except the highly regarded and religious Sir Thomas More. When Cardinal Wolsey, Chancellor of England, names More as his successor, it becomes important for Henry to get More's support, but More cannot be swayed. Henry demands the clergy to renounce the Pope and to name him Head of the Church in England (which they almost all do). Oliver Cromwell frames More, forcing him to resign as Chancellor. Eventually More is brought to trial, found guilty of treason, and beheaded.

This touching film tells the story of a lonely boy (Fernando Rey) who finds solace and friendship in a picture of Christ. As a baby, Marcelino was abandoned by his parents and placed on the steps of a Franciscan monastery. The friars find him there, and provide the child with food and shelter. Their kindness, however, does not prevent little Marcelino from desiring the friendship of other children.

Then Marcelino offers bread and wine to the icon... and suddenly Christ, stirred by the boy's gesture, comes to life...

Mother Teresa: In the Name of God's Poor
$17.99 (Save $1.99)
[VHS Tape] (1997)
Geraldine Chaplin plays Mother Teresa in this incredibly moving film of her life. Starting when she was a nun in the Convent of the Sisters of Loreto in Calcutta and first heard the call to serve Christ in the poorest of the poor in the slums of Calcutta, through her founding of the Missionaries of Charity and culminating with her being awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace in 1979. This is a very moving film and one that you should watch over and over again. If you don't know much of the background to Mother Teresa's life, this film would be a great introduction.

Pope John Paul II
$17.99 (Save $1.99)
[VHS Tape] (1984)
This biographical drama explores the life of Karol Wojtyla (played by Albert Finney) -- the man who became John Paul II -- from his boyhood days in Wadowice, Poland through his ascension to the papacy. Along the way, the film shows us the young Karol, serving as an altar boy while living with his widower father. He later went on to work at a brick quarry, where he saw German soldiers abusing his fellow workers and rounding up Jews. And the horrors of Nazism that he witnessed had a tremendous impact on the rest of his life. Karol decided to become a priest at the age of 22, and the film follows his rise through the Catholic Church's hierarchy and his disagreements with Cardinal Wyszynski and other leaders, as well as his continuing battles with Communists and Nazis. The film then chronicles his many achievements as a Church leader, and concludes with his election as Pope in 1978. A thoroughly enjoyable film. If you love the Pope, you'll love this film!

Ten Commandments
$22.46 (Save $2.49)
[VHS Tape] (1956)
Vivid storytelling at its best. Biblical epic follows Moses' life from birth and abandonment through manhood, slavery, and trials in leading the Jews out of Egypt. Few subtleties in DeMille's second handling of this tale (first filmed in 1923) but few lulls, either. Parting of the Red Sea, writing of the holy tablets are unforgettable highlights. Oscar-winning special effects.
