“If they kill me, I shall rise in the Salvadoran people.” Romero is a compelling and deeply moving look at the life of Archbishop Oscar Romero of El Salvador, who made the ultimate sacrifice in a passionate stand against social injustice and oppression in his country. This film chronicles the transformation of Romero from an apolitical, complacent priest to a committed leader of the Salvadoran people. Pope Francis beatified him in May 2015. Acclaimed actor Raul Julia (Kiss of the Spiderwoman) stars as this man of God forced by the unspeakable events going on around him to take a stand—a stand that ultimately leads to his assassination in 1980 at the hands of the military junta. This film features powerful performances by Richard Jordan (Interiors, The Secret of My Success) and Ana Alicia. Australian writer-director John Duigan (The Year My Voice Broke) makes his directorial debut with Romero. Also includes a special Behind the Scenes feature. Rated PG-13 for mature thematic elements.
