Editorial Reviews

Dougray Scott leads an acclaimed cast in Oscarr Nominee writer/director Roland Joff‚'s* epic story of passion, faith and betrayal. When journalist Robert Torres (Scott) is assigned to write a book about Josemar¡a Escriv  (Charlie Cox), the controversial founder of Opus Dei, he hopes it will bring him closer to his father (Wes Bentley), Escriv 's chilhood friend. As Torres uncovers more about his father's past, he learns dark secrets that will change his world forever. Inspired by actual events and featuring Geraldine Chaplin and Olga Kurylenko, There Be Dragons is a "rousing epic" and a "stirring vision of virtue" (Colin Covert, Star Tribune).

Because cinemas in this area dismissed this one as "very limited release," it's been a long wait. It was worth waiting.

This is the story of two childhood friends who take different life paths that cross during the Spanish Civil War. When one is proposed for sainthood in the 1970's, the son of the other begins research to write a book about him. An old picture links his father to the dead priest for the first time, and the writer begins digging into the story, finding that "there be dragons" in the past.

The movie is a mix of pshychological/spiritual with the action of a bloody war, and the ending is one very few would guess.

Don't rent THERE BE DRAGONS thinking you'll be watching some dungeons and dragons item. It has nothing to do with fantasy worlds or actual dragons.

The movie is the true story of Josemaria Escriva, founder of Opus Dei. This group may sound familiar to you as it was used in the Dan Brown book/movie THE DAVINCI CODE. But it seems that truth is more interesting than fiction as we find out what it was all about. Also don't think this movie is a boring recitation of religious ideology, far from it.

Taking place in Spain Dougray Scott plays a journalist looking into the life of Escriva for an article he's writing. When his father, Judge Manolo, learns of this, he calls for him and provides him with information Scott never realized he had. It seems that his father and Escriva grew up together in the same small town in Spain.

The two began as boyhood chums but financial ruin made Escriva's family a pariah to that of Manolo. Later they have a run in at the seminary they both attend but make amends. Their lives then take to very different paths that one would think would never cross again. Instead, their lives cross at moments more important than anyone might ever know.

Manolo (Wes Bentley) works with his father's company and takes on the attitude of royalty when it comes to his workers. While many are complaining and threatening strikes, influenced by the Communists viewpoints becoming popular, he continues to see himself as the person in charge who can do as he wishes. Things change with time and the factory closes but he retains his wealth and position. Manolo eventually offers his services to the military who have tried to take over the country, going undercover with the subversives who want to have Communist rule.

I've seen this movie twice, once at a prescreen, and once at the theater. I have been waiting for it to come out, so that I can have a movie party for friends to come watch!

It is full of truly unpredictable twists and turns, and lots of hidden meaning and purpose.

I have heard criticism that St. Josemaria Escriva was not featured enough, and the focus was too much on the alternate character, Manolo. I disagree. As prominent as he was, St. Josemaria was, from what I ascertain, an understated though deeply interesting person, and the movie portrays this well.

I am preordering this. Now I am really looking forward to 2012!

There Be Dragons is a wonderful and inspiring film! However, if you think that particular comments about films constitute "spoilers," please read no further....

Told in "flashback," There Be Dragons is a journalist's investigation of the life of Saint Josemaria Escriva and the surprising discovery of how his own dad's life had been intertwined with that of the saint. Much takes place at the time of the Spanish Civil War. Late 20th Century and Early 21st Century America lacks an understanding of that incredibly brutal, bloody place and time.
* In his bizarre, apocalyptic ballad, Miami 2017, Billy Joel casually alluded to the burning of churches "Like in that Spanish civil war."
* In Entertaining Angels' fictional conversation between Dorothy Day and her archbishop, Dorothy's character even seemed to minimize the slaughter of priests and religious - Dorothy would be aghast!(See David Scott's 1997 review, "On the Wrong Day" for more on the shortcomings of that film.)

There Be Dragons instead reminds us that for many of that time & place, concern for social justice lost touch with its moral compass and led to absolute injustice and depravity. Ultimately, this movie is an incredible story about redemption.

When the movie ended, I sat frozen in my chair, too moved to do anything else. I have never seen such a movie and will own it on DVD when it becomes available. I will buy many copies and give them away. It didn't get much attention in the theaters, but as the word spreads the DVDs should reach many people. No one seeing it will walk away unchanged. This is a movie to own and to ponder.

Wonderful movie, can't wait for it to come out in DVD. Limited viewing the the cinema so a lot of people don't know what they missed. Show your support and buy the DVD when it becomes available.
