I haven’t seen The Nativity Story yet, though I am hoping to see it this weekend. I may post my impressions of the film after I view it, though there is an incredible amount of reflection and reviews of the film on the Internet, so I doubt I would add anything new.
I just came across an interesting article in the Independent Catholic News on the history of Mary in the Cinema. It’s definitely worth a read.
In addition, make sure to check out Matt Pages’s Bible Film Blog for many relevant posts on The Nativity Story.
