Luther the Movie

According to the USCCB: While bringing the period and its key personalities vividly to life, director Eric Till's well-crafted biopic veers steadily from balanced historical accuracy toward hagiography. Throughout the narrative Till deflects blame away from Luther, glossing over his shortcomings with a gilded revisionist glaze.

According to Chuck Colson, quoting Andrew Coffin of the Evangelical based World Magazine: the film “hits most of its historical marks,” especially when you consider the constraints imposed by telling such a story in two hours.

Think I'll go with the USCCB on this one. Any word from the ADL on whether this film foments anti-Catholicism?
