NEW YORK. The three-year National Eucharistic Revival that began in 2022 comes to the big screen with the arrival of the educational and energizing documentary “Jesus Thirsts: The Miracle of the Eucharist” (Fathom Events). Written and directed by Tim Moriarty, the roughly 90-minute film was shown in theaters over several days in June.

NEW YORK. John Krasinski wrote, directed and plays a prominent role in the generally wholesome fantasy “IF” (PG, Paramount).

Linda Oppelt 0 196 Article rating: 5.0

NEW YORK. An inspiring but once little-known chapter of history provides the basis for the Holocaust drama “Irena’s Vow” (R, Quiver).
