In this exhilarating action film, For Greater Glory tells the story of an impassioned group of men and women who individually make the decision to risk everything for family, faith and the very future of their country. The film tells the true story of the 1920s Cristero War -the daring people's revolt that rocked twentieth century North America.
Academy Award nominee Andy Garcia headlines an acclaimed cast as General Gorostieta, the retired military man who at first thinks he has nothing personal at stake as he and his wife (Golden Globe winner Eva Longoria) watch Mexico fall into a violent civil war. The man who hesitates in joining the cause becomes the most inspiring and self-sacrificing leader of the resistence as he realizes the cost of religious persecution on his countrymen. He transforms a rag-tag band of rebels into a heroic force to be reckoned with. Facing seemingly impossible odds against a powerful and ruthless government, it is youthful idealists, feisty renegades and, most of all, one remarkable teenager named Jose, who reveal how courage and belief are forged even when justice seems lost. Also starring Peter O'Toole, Eduardo Verastegui, Oscar Isaac and Santiago Cabrera, For Greater Glory is a magnificent film.
