Movie Info

In 1917, outside the parish of Fátima, Portugal, a 10-year-old girl and her two younger cousins witness multiple visitations of the Virgin Mary, who tells them that only prayer and suffering will bring an end to World War I. As secularist government officials and Church leaders try to force the children to recant their story, word of the sighting spreads across the country, inspiring religious pilgrims to flock to the site in hopes of witnessing a miracle. What they experience will transform their quiet lives and bring the attention of a world yearning for peace. Based on real-life events and starring Joaquim de Almeida ("Queen of the South"), Goran Visnjić (Beginners), Stephanie Gil (Terminator: Dark Fate) and Lúcia Moniz (Love, Actually), with Sônia Braga (Aquarius) and Harvey Keitel (The Piano, The Irishman), Fatima is an uplifting story about the power of faith.

Critic Reviews for Fatima

All Critics (42) | Top Critics (7)

The message of the Virgin, less consoling than apocalyptic, is visualized by Pontecorvo in sometimes lurid terms.

September 2, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

In the flourishing faith-based movie genre, this is one of the better ones.

August 28, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Fatima is told simply but emotionally, prioritizing the sensorial reality of the children's world and the people inhabiting it. This devotion to the 'real' makes the holy vision palpable and plausible.

August 28, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

While not especially artful, "Fatima" honors those who stand by their convictions. That its role models are children makes the message all the more remarkable.

August 27, 2020 | Full Review…

One-note characterizations aren't helped by a fashionably desaturated palette, which contributes to an unvaried, solemn atmosphere.

August 27, 2020 | Full Review…

"Fatima" is prettily shot but realized with little unique expression.
