You can get a taste of what the film will be like by visiting the official Fatima the Film website.
The film tells the uplifting story about the power of faith, based on real-life events. In 1917, outside the parish of Fátima, Portugal, a 10-year-old girl and her two younger cousins witnessed multiple visitations of the Virgin Mary, who told them that only prayer and suffering would bring an end to World War I. As secularist government officials and Church leaders try to force the children to recant their story, word of the sighting spreads across the country, inspiring religious pilgrims to flock to the site in hopes of witnessing a miracle. What they experience will transform their quiet lives and bring the attention of a world yearning for peace.
FATIMA stars Joaquim de Almeida (“The Hitman’s Bodyguard”), Goran Višnjić (Beginners), Stephanie Gil (Terminator: Dark Fate) and Lúcia Moniz (Love, Actually), with Sônia Braga (Aquarius) and Harvey Keitel (The Piano, The Irishman). FATIMA is directed by Marco Pontecorvo (Pa-ra-da, “Game of Thrones”) from a script by Pontecorvo, Valerio D’Annunzio and Barbara Nicolosi. Original music is by Paolo Buonvino (Fathers & Daughters, Quiet Chaos) with a new original song performed by Andrea Bocelli. The soundtrack for the film is available to download digitally now and is released by Decca Records.
