Synopsis

Pernilla August and Christian Bale star in the title roles of this inspirational twhour movie from executive producers Eunice Kennedy Shriver and her son, Bobby Shriver. In a film first, “Mary, Mother of Jesus” tells the moving story of Jesus from his mother’s prospective. It is a story of love, sacrifice and faith, with the film both humanizing and celebrating Mary’s pivotal role as the Mother of Jesus. While Mary’s concerns for her child’s welfare and her desire to protect Him are those of every mother, her remarkable faith is continually tested as she must endure Jesus’ suffering and death, accept His miraculous destiny and dedicate the rest of her life to the sharing of His message. First aired on NBC, Sunday, 11/14/99 9-11 p.m. ET/PT

Dove Review

Although seen from a Catholic perspective, it does not push Catholicism. The film presents a thoughtful, and feasible look at the influence Christ’s mother might have had on him.

Content Description

The Roman solders are seen beating people. Jesus is crucified. The material is handled with discretion.
