“The Divine Plan” (Nexus Media)

U.S. President Ronald Reagan and St. John Paul II are seen in a still from the feature-length documentary "The Divine Plan." The Catholic News Service classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. (CNS/Nexus Media)

By Catholic News Service

This feature-length documentary examines the partnership between St. John Paul II and President Ronald Reagan that took shape after both survived assassination attempts and asks whether their collaboration in ending the Cold War and bringing about the fall of Soviet communism was accidental or providential.

Filmmaker Robert Orlando showcases interviews with church insiders, political authors and government officials and, although the poorly handled visual aspect of his film distracts from the fascinating information with which it’s filled, this is still a wonderful addition to the history of relations between the United States and the Catholic Church.

In theaters for one night only, Nov. 6. For screening information, go to: thedivineplanmovie.com.

Mature themes, some potentially disturbing historical images. The Catholic News Service classification is A-II — adults and adolescents. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America.
