From IMDb: “A powerful and uplifting drama about the power of faith, Fatima tells the story of a 10-year-old shepherd and her two young cousins in Fátima, Portugal, who report seeing visions of the Virgin Mary. Their revelations inspire believers but anger officials of both the Church and the secular government, who try to force them to recant their story. As word of their prophecy spreads, tens of thousands of religious pilgrims flock to the site in hopes of witnessing a miracle. What they experience will change their lives forever.”

Poster Rating: C

Review: Too much empty space and while knowledge of the film make it slightly interesting, the unfamiliar aren’t likely to be that interested unless they recognize the name of the locale the film title represents.

Trailer Rating: C / C+

Review: (#1) The story of Fatima is one that will require research from non-Catholics as it was a rather small event to the rest of the world, but an important one to the Catholic Church and its parishioners. The film doesn’t effectively sell itself beyond those who would already have some measure of interest.

(#2) The original trailer featured most of the same information and it doesn’t improve much on the prior design, but this feels more monumental, exciting, and important than the prior even if by only a small degree.
