PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST will be opening nationwide the week before Easter weekend on Friday, March 23.
It has been rated PG-13 for some violent content and disturbing images.
The film stars Jim Caviezel, probably best known for his performance in PASSION OF THE CHRIST. It also stars Olivier Martinez and James Faulkner. It has been written and directed by Andrew Hyatt, whose last directorial effort, FULL OF GRACE, detailed the final years of Mary of Nazareth.
In PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST, two very different men are bound together by their love for Christ.
As each of them realize that Rome has been overtaken by Nero’s evil at the same time their lives are drawing to a close, they struggle to finish their races and leave behind a book of lasting importance for the millions who will follow Christ in generations to come.
Luke risks his life to visit Paul, who is held captive in a Roman prison under Nero’s rule. Together, they struggle against a determined emperor and the frailties of the human spirit in order to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ and spread their message to the world.
Paul’s letters and writings were vital to the spreading of Christianity and became a large part of the New Testament. The story focuses on how, despite persecution and peril, they shared Jesus’ message of love, redemption and forgiveness with a small community of believers who in turn, took it to the whole world.
Great pains were taken to maintain Biblical accuracy. Using scripture as the only reference, director Andrew Hyatt recreated the story of Paul on film, including the close relationship with Luke, whom at the end of Paul’s life, at his own peril, traveled in and out of the prison carrying Paul’s writings to the community of believers.
PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST is a reminder that we are surrounded by evil, which can strike suddenly and without case. It is also a reminder that love is the only answer.
