‘The Miracle Maker’ (2007) U Rating
This animated feature-length film uses a mix of 3D models and 2D animation to tell the story of Christ through the eyes of a child. Originally a BBC Wales production, it showcases the voices of some of Britain’s finest actors: Ralph Fiennes as Jesus, Miranda Richardson as Mary Magdalene, Richard E. Grant as John the Baptist and David Thewlis as Judas. In ancient Israel young Tamar (voiced by Rebecca Callard) meets Jesus, a carpenter, whose ability to perform miracles and teachings on God draw a band of loyal followers around him. As his popularity grows, he challenges the authority of the established Judaic religious leaders, who begin to plot his downfall. The animation is complemented by a beautifully lyrical score, written by Academy Award winning Anne Dudley.
