REVIEW: THERE BE DRAGONS
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.
