 “During the second century, Anna, a young slave girl, is rescued by Christians in Smyrna and befriended by the bishop. As she struggles to reconcile her beliefs, she and other Christians stand up for their faith when Caesar demands worship from all.” ~from Google

Title: Polycarp

Producer: Henline Productions

Year Made: 2015

My Rating: ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ (five stars)

Romance Content: None that I remember.

Recommended age range: There are some parts that would probably scary to young children. However, I know kids ages 3+ who have watched it, and weren’t dramatically affected.

My Review:

This was an excellent movie! I found out about it from a review in an issue of Radiant Hearts Magazine*, and I’m glad that I decided to watch it! It sparked some fun conversations with my family- for example, this one:

“What does ‘Polycarp’ mean?”

“Many fish?” 😀

And this one (while playing a game called Catch Phrase):

“Polly want a [blank]!”

“Carp?” 😛

Aside from that, Polycarp was helpful spiritually, as it challenges viewers if they would be willing to stand for Christ. There were other challenging things in it as well, although I can’t think of them at the moment. {Sorry!} I found this movie to be inspiring. It was very challenging and encouraging, and I most certainly recommend it!

*I realized that the Polycarp review has not been published yet (as of 01/31/2019) but that it will be published tomorrow. (Since I’m the editor, I had already read the review and watched the movie… it’s kind of a long story.) Sorry about that! Just wanted to clarify. 😉

      Yay! 🙂 I hope you are able to watch it! Before buying it, check to see if it’s at your local library- some libraries have it! (I always like to check out books and movies from the library rather than buying them, and then if I really like it, I can buy it. 😉 )
