A divine dozen for Easter, from Christian Bale to Jim Caviezel to Will Ferrell
Mary, Mother of Jesus (1999, TV)
WHAT IT IS A tepidly received TV movie in which the story of Jesus is seen through the eyes of his mom (Pernilla August), who is portrayed as feisty and outspoken instead of a quiet bystander.
FINAL JUDGMENT Bale had the right first name for playing Christ, but it was the role of Bruce Wayne that finally made him a star and a partnership with David O. Russell that finally welcomed him among the Oscar-anointed.
