His story and conversion are inspiring and compelling, and his writings are among the most respected in the world even today. Confessions, one of his most famous works, could also supplement watching the movie and be a good idea to add to your summer reading list.
RAVES FOR RESTLESS HEART
“We hope that many who watch this inspiring human drama will allow themselves to be found by the Truth and in return also find Love.” - Pope Benedict XVI
“Many generations of Catholics have turned to the Confessions of Saint Augustine for encouragement and sustenance in living as disciples of the Lord. RESTLESS HEART invites even more people to discover the power of this spiritual classic. This film brings the words of the Confessions to life by enabling us to more fully understand the relationships and the culture that shaped Augustine, and to better grasp his talents and ambitions, sins and struggles and, ultimately, his sanctity.” - Cardinal Francis George, Archbishop of Chicago
“RESTLESS HEART is a movie in which man’s spiritual nature is successfully portrayed – and God is a real character. Hollywood production standards, but not Hollywood sensibilities. It’s coming from an insider’s point of view. This film is what we’ve been waiting for! Well done. Bravo!”- Sr. Helena Burns, FSP, popular Catholic blogger and film reviewer
