Son of God
In this dramatic film, Diogo Morgado does an excellent job representing Jesus in a way that would appeal to viewers, young and old.He is calm and likable as Jesus. The director does a good job hitting the highlights of who Jesus is: the major events, the politics of the period, and the division Jesus had with the religious leaders of his time are clear from the beginning of Son of God (2014, rated PG-13).
What sets Son of God apart from other biblical movies is its portrayal of the women in Jesus' life and mission. Principal characters in the film include his mother, Mary the devoted follower, and the wife of Pilot. When Jesus' own disciples ran away from their Lord, the women always held their ground, remaining faithful to Him to the very end and beyond. Overlooked for centuries, I applaud the makers of this film for getting that message out there.
