(2016) (Adam Greaves-Neal, Sara Lazzaro) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: As they travel from Alexandria to Jerusalem, young Jesus and his immediate and extended family must contend with a Roman centurion sent to kill him and a demon determined to undermine the messiah, all while the boy tries to understand the miracles he can perform.
- Seven years after his birth, young Jesus (ADAM GREAVES-NEAL) lives with his parents, Mary (SARA LAZZARO) and Joseph (VINCENT WALSH), and older brother, James (FINN McLEOD IRELAND), in Alexandria, Egypt, what with having fled their homeland and the earlier decree for the execution of all young male children in the vicinity of Bethlehem. After Jesus is accused of killing a slightly older bully -- something actually done by a Demon (RORY KEENAN) who's determined to undermine the young messiah -- but then miraculously resurrects the dead boy, Joseph decides -- based on that and a prophetic dream he had -- that they should return to Jerusalem.
Along with his parents and his uncle, Cleopas (CHRISTIAN McKAY), and that man's family, Jesus sets out on foot for Nazareth and ultimately Jerusalem. But when King Herod (JONATHAN BAILEY) gets wind of the young boy who's reportedly performing miracles, he orders a Roman centurion, Severus (SEAN BEAN), and his men -- including Weer (CLIVE RUSSELL) -- to find and kill the boy. With the help of others, the extended family manages to remain safe, all while Jesus ponders his unique abilities and his family struggles over the decision about whether to inform him that he's the son of God.
