We saw it last weekend here in Los Angeles. It is very well done, gripping, so moving. I lived in Mexico City after high school and studied Latin American history to some depth, as well as speaking Spanish fluently. I was never taught this history.

Many of the priests and nuns, convents-full, came to southern California during this era, another fact I had never known until 2 years ago, when this history was presented at the local retreat center near our Catholic church.

There was a movie starring Henry Fonda and Pedro Armandarez about a fugitive Mexican priest during this shameful era. I believe the title was The Fugitive? There was also a novel from which the movie was adapted.

I recall reading the book as well. It was The Power and the Glory by Graham Greene.

Studied South and Central American history in college and worked in Mexican travel for a number of years. Never heard of this. Its amazing how the left can control information.

Catholics really need to support this movie... it will send a message to Hollywood that these kind of movies can make good money. Then hopefully more of these movies will be made instead of the putrid filth they usually put out.

I didn’t know about it until I read about Padre Pro about 10 years ago. They actually took pictures of his execution.
