I have been tracking this on their facebook page for a while, I wish they would have a wider release!  There was a showing in a town about an hour from here last month but we couldnt make it  :(

The movie is mediocre at best. Definitely not the most "historically accurate" as one of the reviewers is quoted in their banner ads. It concentrates mostly on the children themselves and their hardships and not the message of Fatima so a lot of the actual message is not conveyed or minimized. The whole thing is portrayed rather drearily with a depressing musical score throughout most of the film.

With that in mind, it's worth seeing - the miracle of the sun is well done. Some of the acting will have you chuckling at how corny it is (watch during the miracle of the sun when a woman's eye site is restored - watch the husband's reaction - hillarious!)

I thought it was easily available for purchase on DVD, but I could be mistaken.  Netflix offers it for rent even, I think.

I watched itabout a week ago. It was disappointing, the special effects mediocre. It was okay if you knew the story. My protestant wife was unimpressed,.. didn't say a word. Being full of expectation was the worst way to start the movie. I intended to pass it around my non catholic neighbors but wont bother now. The trailer was the great.

Well, I can wait for it to get to Netflix. Too bad if it wasn't that good. We need a really really good Fatima movie. People need to know about Fatima, especially Catholics. I don't think they talk about Fatima much in the NO churches around here (New Jersey).

The only good Fatima movie would be one exposing the lies of the Vatican regarding the second and third secrets.

Apparently the Vatican doesn't think so, or they would have done a proper consecration of Russia long ago, and would have published the real and full Third Secret in 1960.  They still haven't done that:
