As we travel on a journey of faith through Christ's passion, death and resurrection, this podcast series - 'Lent and Easter at the Movies' - takes us to the cinema as Fr Peter Malone MSC relates a series of thought-provoking movies to the day's Gospel reading.

One audio review is released for the Sundays of Lent and Easter. We also have a podcast for each day of Holy Week and other key dates.

Easter Saturday

Regeneration (1997)

"During World War I, Dr William Rivers is in charge of a psychiatric unit in Scotland. A sympathetic man, he gives himself completely (even to identifying with patients in dreams) to the recovery of shell-shocked and traumatised soldiers. However, the tone of the movie is also one of hope for healing, especially with its title, 'Regeneration'."
