Academy Award® Nominated Director Roland Joffé Unveils the Path to Sanctity in the Shocking True Story
One man’s quest for sainthood is another man’s deep, dark past when the critically-acclaimed historical epic THERE BE DRAGONS arrives on
Blu-ray and DVD January 10 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
London-based investigative journalist Robert Torres (Dougray Scott, Hitman) travels to Spain to research a book about Josemaría Escrivá (Charlie Cox, The Merchant of Venice), the controversial founder of the Catholic instiution Opus Dei. Robert’s visit is on track until he hits a wall, both professionally and personally, when his most promising source – his own father, Manolo Torres (Wes Bently, American Beauty) – turns out to be his least cooperative one. Robert begins to unearth his father’s toxic secrets when he learns that Manolo was not only born in the same Spanish town as Josemaría, but that they were childhood friends and attended the same seminary. The two men take radically different paths in life, with Josemaría dedicating his life to his faith while Manolo is swept into the brutal and tumultuous Spanish Civil War. As Robert continues to explore the secrets of Josemaría’s life and Manolo’s mysterious anger, their overlapping journeys are revealed.
With intense supporting performances from Derek Jacobi (The King’s Speech), Rodrigo Santoro (300) and Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace), the THERE BE DRAGONS Blu-ray and DVD offers righteous bonus features including a featurette and deleted scenes. Prebook is
