|7:30 PM: PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST|
|PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST is the story of 2 men: Luke as a friend & physician & Paul, who is being held captive in a bleak prison cell. Nero is determined to rid Rome of Christians & does not flinch from executing them in the grisliest ways possible. Before Paul’s death sentenced can be enacted, Luke resolves to write another book, one that details the beginnings of “The Way” & the birth of what will come to be known as the church. Bound in chains, Paul’s struggle is internal. He has survived so much – floggings, shipwreck, stoning, starvation – yet as he waits for his appointment with death, he is haunted by the shadows of his past misdeeds. Alone in the dark, he wonders if he has been forgotten… & if he has the strength to finish well. PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST is a solid, Biblical movie with compelling performances. It will transport you back to the time of the apostles where we find 2 men struggling against a determined emperor & the frailty of the human spirit in order to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ & spread their message to the world.
Stars Jim Caviezel, Joanne Whalley, Olivier Martinez, Faith-based/Drama, PG-13, (Violence) 110 Minutes
