Drama: A Roman tribune has his beliefs challenged when he is tasked with investigating the disappearance of Christ's body following the crucifixion.
It's A.D. 33 and Clavius (JOSEPH FIENNES) is a Roman military tribune who believes in his Roman gods, but not those of other religions around him. With Yeshua (CLIFF CURTIS), a.k.a. Jesus, having become the messiah for the Jews of this occupied land, Pontius Pilate (PETER FIRTH) wants Clavius to oversee the religious leader's crucifixion, and assigns young tribune Lucius (TOM FELTON) to accompany him. Despite the common practice of simply burying the crucified in a mass grave, Lucius allows the messiah's followers to take Yeshua's body and place it in a tomb, with the caveat that it be sealed and guarded by two Roman soldiers.

When those men end up drunk and fall asleep, it's discovered that Yeshua's body has vanished. Fearing how this could be perceived by his followers and the rest of the Jews and could result in an uprising, Pontius Pilate orders Clavius to find Yeshua's body as well as those who took it, and persecute them. The tribune then goes about that work, interrogating those who knew Yeshua, including Mary Magdalene (MARIA BOTT), a prostitute who was one of his followers. As Clavius continues on his quest, however, he soon comes to believe in Yeshua as more than just a mortal man, including that he indeed may have been resurrected.

If they're intrigued by a different angle on Christ's resurrection, they might be interested.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
