“Picturehouse is proud to present FATIMA in theaters everywhere as the nation opens up,” said Bob Berney, Picturehouse CEO. “The timing of Mother’s Day on May 9 and the Feast Day of Our Lady of Fatima on May 13 tees up a great reason to return to the cinemas and celebrate this beautiful story.”
In 1917, outside the parish of Fátima, Portugal, a 10-year-old girl and her two younger cousins witness multiple visitations of the Virgin Mary, who tells them that only prayer and suffering will bring an end to World War I. Word of the sighting spreads across the country, inspiring religious pilgrims to flock to the site in hopes of witnessing a miracle. Inspired by real-life events and starring Goran Višnjić (Beginners), Joaquim de Almeida (“Queen of the South”), Stephanie Gil (Terminator: Dark Fate), Lúcia Moniz (Love, Actually), with Golden Globe® nominee Sônia Braga (Aquarius) and Academy Award® nominee Harvey Keitel (The Piano), FATIMA has been hailed by critics as “beautiful and moving,” (Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times) and is an uplifting story about the power of faith.
