Item Description...
Here is a Francis who transcends the cherished image of the peaceful lover of nature. Go behind the legend and discover a man who lived in a world much like our own, filled with violence and upheaval. A man who played many roles: wealthy lothario, soldier, businessman, preacher, defender of the poor, and a rebel who never hesitated to speak the truth to the powerful. Narrated by Liev Schreiber (The Manchurian Candidate) with Robert Sean Leonard (House, M.D., The Dead Poet's Society) as the voice of Francis and based on the biography of St. Francis by best-selling author Donald Spoto. Reluctant Saint was filmed entirely on location in Italy and offers new insights into a life that has engaged the hearts and minds of millions over the centuries.

Community Description
Pamela Mason Wagner produced this in-depth look at the life of Saint Francis, whose legacy lives on in the hearts of countless Catholics. Known as everything from a soldier to a businessman to a nature enthusiast, Saint Francis was much more than that. Set in his native Umbria, Italy, the film details the events and influences that made Saint Francis who he was. Liev Schreiber narrates and Robert Sean Leonard provides the voice of the saint.

Best movie of all time. Brilliant!!  Jun 16, 2009

Common mix up two movies same title-- Please read this  Dec 28, 2008
It is too bad that that this great movie about St. Joseph of Cupertino is confused by so many people including this site. Half of the comments for the movie about Cupertino are about another movie of the same title but about St. Francis of Asssi. Even when I searched this site to find if the Cupertino movie was available on DVD I found that this site has the movie starring the same actors as in the Cupertino movie listed for movie about St. Francis. Everyone is mixed up. Unless they have fixed this problem or have muddled it even more please be sure you are ordering the correct item. The movie about Cupertino is a nice wholesome family movie. Yes it is a bit 1960's corny and has implausable moments, but it is overall a great movie to sit down with the family and be moved by the humble, and sometimes huble amusing holiness of Cupertino. I think this is one of the great Catholic movies of all time and deserves to be in every Catholic home along with the other greats such as Song of Bernadette etc. But it appears as of this writing that it is not available for purchase, probably because of the confusion by all as explained above. So the great movie about Cupertino being linked forever to (what I gather as) a second rate docudrama about Assisi my be its demise. If anyone knows about a source for DVD's or if you can assist in informing a company such as Ignatius Press please do so. If you have an insight write me at Thanks
Poor   Aug 2, 2008
This film/ documentary did nothing for me, and was a bland and at times inaccurate portrayal of one of the world's Most Loved historical figures. Although I have done a large amount of reading and research on Saint Francis, I can honestly say that you can find out more about his life from "googling" him and reading two random web-pages. It is hard to imagine in 60 minutes any less could be said about St. Francis. Moreover, some of the information was completely false. In my opinion, and this is only my opinion, this film in no way illustrates the Life of a man who merged with God and became a Living Prayer himself. In others words, spend your money else where.
St. Joseph of Cuppertino's Life, NOT St. Francis of Assisi  Apr 6, 2008
Great, humorous movie of the life of a poor peasant (Joseph Cuppertino, NOT Francis of Assisi!) with seemingly below average intelligence who understands the Holy Trinity better than his learned brother monks and abbot. Highly recommend this movie for first time viewers of Catholic movies.
Awesome movie of faith  Feb 5, 2008
I had always heard stories about St. Francis of Assisi, but seeing this documentary really showed this man of faith struggle with himself, his faith, his religion, and the higher powers within the Catholic Church. He just wanted to share his faith simply with others but his popularity brought problems of its own. It is a movie that every person of faith should see no matter what religious tradition they come from.
