RISEN is the epic Biblical story of the Resurrection, as told through the eyes of a non-believer. Clavius (Joseph Fiennes), a powerful Roman military tribune, and his aide, Lucius (Tom Felton), are tasked with solving the mystery of what happened to Jesus (Cliff Curtis) in the weeks following the crucifixion, in order to disprove the rumors of a risen Messiah and prevent an uprising in Jerusalem.

Recently, the RISEN team visited the Sheen Center for a screening and had this to say about the experience of meeting Pope Francis at the Vatican:
In January and February of this year, we took you to the movies for a few sneak peaks inside the highly acclaimed film RISEN. Our coverage included my personal interviews with the film’s stars Joseph Fiennes (Clavius) and Tom Felton (Lucias). Bishop Barron shared his review of the film, saying of it, “I was surprised and delighted to discover that the movie is, in fact, robustly Christian and substantially faithful to the Biblical account of what transpired after the death of Jesus.”
Now, in case you missed it in theaters, you have the opportunity to bring this movie home digitally on May 10th or on May 24th on 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™ or DVD. Order yours on Amazon and support CatholicMom.com with your purchase.
