    The Nun’s Story (1959)
    The Nun’s Story is an unforgettable revelation of the seldom-seen world behind convent walls. Audrey Hepburn portrays Sister Luke, a nun whose life journey leads her to a much desired position as a surgical nurse in a Belgian Congo missionary hospital. After she returns to her native Belgium, World War II breaks out and she finds her commitment seriously tested -- torn between the pull of the Resistance and the church’s neutrality. Directed by four-time Academy Award winner Fred Zinnemann, The Nun’s Story earned eight Oscar nominations including Best Picture.

    Special Features:
    •Theatrical trailer
    •Languages: English & Français
    •Subtitles: English, Français & Español (feature film only).

    The Shoes of the Fisherman (1968)
    From Morris L. West’s bestseller, The Shoes of the Fisherman is both an urgent tale of geopolitical intrigue and a fascinating look at Vatican procedure. Anthony Quinn plays a newly-freed Russian political prisoner thrust into the spotlight as Pope Kiril Lakota. Laurence Olivier, Oskar Werner, John Gielgud, David Janssen and Leo McKern enrich a production which was nominated for two Academy Awards and won a Golden Globe for Alex North’s score.

    Special Features:
    •Soundtrack remastered in Dolby Digital 5.1
    •Vintage featurette The Shoes of the Fisherman
    •Theatrical trailer
    •Languages: English & Français

    The Miracle of Our Lady Fatima (1952)
    This much-loved movie thoughtfully recreates the 1917 actual events that brought hope and new religious fervor to a war-ravaged world. Three peasant youths in Fatima, Portugal see a vision: a woman in a cloud of light offering words of devotion and prophecy. The children face torture by the anticlerical government but are soon embraced by the faithful masses drawn by the promise of a miracle. Director John Brahm skillfully balances simplicity and spectacle, all powerfully supported by Max Steiner’s Oscar-nominated score.

    Special Features:
    •Theatrical trailer
    •Languages: English & Français
    •Subtitles: English, Français & Español (feature film only)
