Steven Greydanus reviews movies in light of Christian faith and, for the month of November, tells us about his favorite saint movies.

The 13th Day
Steven D. Greydanus, of the National Catholic Register says: The 13th Day is the best film ever made about Fatima — the most beautiful and effective, as well as one of the most historically accurate. Sister Lucia's memories are imbued with an aura of reverie and contemplation by striking visuals, an effective score and a stark, simple narrative. A fact-based film that succeeds in being both artful and reverent is a rare thing. The 13th Day succeeds.
