The Divine Plan

First slide

 

This feature-length documentary examines the partnership between St. John Paul II and President Ronald Reagan that took shape after both survived assassination attempts and asks whether their collaboration in ending the Cold War and bringing about the fall of Soviet communism was accidental or providential. Filmmaker Robert Orlando showcases interviews with church insiders, political authors and government officials and, although the poorly handled visual aspect of his film distracts from the fascinating information with which it's filled, this is still a wonderful addition to the history of relations between the United States and the Catholic Church.

 

Watch out for: Mature themes, some potentially disturbing historical images.

Rated: A-II, adults and adolescents; MPAA: Not rated
