We saw a screener to The Thorn, which will be in theaters Monday and Tuesday only through Fathom Events.
What started as a dramatic presentation of scripture to a youth group has blossomed into a compelling piece of theatre captured on film that gives Cirque du Soleil a run for its money!
The film/musical is a look at the big picture of Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation -- told mostly through movement -- by the Apostle John to a boy who visits the beloved disciple's cave on Patmos with the intention of stealing. He leaves with something priceless: a new identity.
The cave scenes are shot at a beach, but the story unfolds on a stage, and they use both the theatric and cinematic approaches seamlessly.
The Diary of Perpetua, has some very touching moments as Mother Mary.
Pray The Thorn gives many a fresh look at the best-selling book of all time!
