Description

What price would you pay for freedom? In the exhilarating action epic For Greater Glory an impassioned group of men and women each make the decision to risk it all for family, faith and the very future of their country, as the film's adventure unfolds against the long-hidden, true story of the 1920s Cristero War, the daring people's revolt that rocked 20th Century North America.

Academy Award® nominee Andy Garcia headlines an acclaimed cast as General Gorostieta, the retired military man who at first thinks he has nothing personal at stake as he and his wife (Golden Globe winner Eva Longoria) watch Mexico fall into a violent civil war. Yet the man who hesitates in joining the cause will soon become the resistance's most inspiring and self-sacrificing leader, as he begins to see the cost of religious persecution on his countrymen . . . and transforms a rag-tag band
of rebels into a heroic force to be reckoned with. The General faces impossible odds against a powerful and ruthless government. Yet it is those he meets on the journey; youthful idealists, feisty renegades and, most of all, one remarkable teenager named Jose who reveal to him how courage and belief are forged even when justice seems lost. Also starring Peter O'Toole, Eduardo Verastegui, Oscar Isaac and Santiago Cabrera in an all-star cast.

This film is rated R for war violence and some disturbing images.

"For Greater Glory vividly depicts the difficult circumstances in which Catholics of that time lived - and died for - their faith. It is a top-flight production whose message of the importance of religious freedom has particular resonance for us today. It is my earnest hope that people of faith throughout our country will rally behind For Greater Glory and, in doing so, will highlight the importance of religious freedom in our society." - Most Reverend Jose Gomez, Archbishop of Los Angeles

- For Greater Glory

Excellent movie! It is rated R because the movie revolves around a war. But, I did not find it overly gorey. Some scenes may not be appropriate for younger children...it briefly shows people hanged on telegraph poles...and people being shot. Nothing they haven't seen before if they play video games. It shows wonderful examples of heroic virtue. I loved it.

- For Greater Glory

It is one of the best movies. I've ever seen. It has a very important teaching about religious freedom. Very historically accurate and very good acting.
