Movie Info

In the fall of 1979, John Paul II was one year into a transformative papacy filled with hope and dynamism. Northern Ireland was a decade into the Troubles, a bloody conflict that shrouded all of Ireland in gloom. The dramatic encounter between this charismatic Polish Pope and the "land of Saints and Scholars," is captured poignantly in John Paul II in Ireland: A Plea for Peace.

Critic Reviews for John Paul II in Ireland: A Plea for Peace

All Critics (2) | Rotten (2)

  • Whatever about Pope John Paul II's impact on the Peace Process, just like Pope Francis' recent visit to Ireland, what this curious documentary does prove - without a doubt - is that we have changed a lot since 1979.

  • Talking heads, including Dana and Ronan Mullen, do suggest a certain slant, however input from Seamus Mallon and historians Tim Pat Coogan and Diarmaid Ferriter gives it more depth.
