Inspired by real-life events, Fatima is an historical drama based on the captivating story of one of the Catholic Church’s most fabled places of pilgrimage—a depiction of the events leading up to the astonishing phenomenon in Portugal, “The Miracle of the Sun.”

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 WWI. Word of the sighting spreads across the country, inspiring religious pilgrims to flock to the site in hopes of witnessing a miracle.

Starring Goran Višnjić (Beginners), Joaquim de Almeida (Our Brand is Crisis), Stephanie Gil (Terminator: Dark Fate), Sônia Braga (Bacurau) and Harvey Keitel (Taxi Driver) , the film is directed by Marco Pontecorvo.

It also features two songs from the world-renowned Italian operatic tenor Andrea Bocelli, which are also featured on the film’s soundtrack album, which debuted at retailers nationwide on August 28, 2020.
