About the film:
Many Beautiful Things tells the story of Lilias Trotter, a daring young woman who defied all norms by winning the favor of England’s top art critic, John Ruskin. In an era when women were thought incapable of producing high art, Ruskin promised that her work could be “immortal.” But with her legacy on the line, Lilias made a stunning decision that bids us to question the limits of self-sacrifice. As Lilias journeys as a missionary to French Algeria in the late 1800’s, viewers are left to wonder, “Could you abandon a dream to pursue your true calling?” Featuring the voices of Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary Crawley from Downton Abbey) and John Rhys-Davies (Lord of the Rings, Indiana Jones). Directed by award-winning filmmaker Laura Waters Hinson
(As We Forgive) with original music by Sleeping at Last.
*Redeemer is particularly excited about this film because Laura happens to be our very own Pat Hickman's cousin!
