Journey to Bethlehem review
Journey to Bethlehem is a compelling musical narrative revolving around teenage Mary and her miraculous pregnancy. Mary discovers her betrothed is Joseph, a man she had earlier met in the market. An angelic visitation, from Gabriel sends shockwaves through her life when she learns her unborn child will be the son of God, causing tension in her relationship with Joseph.
During this, King Herod, fueled by prophecies of a newborn king, initiates a census to locate any expectant women or newborn boys posing a threat to his rule. His son, Antipater, is entrusted with this task. As Mary and Joseph journey to Bethlehem, they encounter trials, yet remain unfaltering in their faith for the imminent miracle.
This film is an engaging, faith-based musical that gracefully combines biblical events with a modern twist. The performances are well-executed, particularly Fiona Palomo and Milo Manheim, who show the trials and unyielding faith of Mary and Joseph with real depth.
Antonio Banderas delivers a convincing portrayal of an insecure and threatened King Herod. The narrative is skilfully woven, striking a balance between drama, faith, and musical elements – making it an intriguing watch for both religious and secular audiences.
As in the Biblical story, there are some adult topics. King Herod is shown drinking wine and the movie does contain some violence. Overall, the movie’s message is positive and educational. Older kids and parents alike should watch this film.
