New Anti-Catholic Film Critical of Blessed Pius IX

Edit: it's based on a true story, just like Spotlight.  Spielberg, who is directing this upcoming film, has a penchant for anti-Catholic films.  Why wouldn't he be anti-Catholic?  But he really doesn't meet with much of an adverse reaction when he does these things.  Imagine if the show were on the other foot?   If someone were to make a film about a forced famine in the Ukraine during the 30s, and it certainly deserves a major film treatment, it is very unlikely it would be made owing to the religious sensibility and the anti-Christian and anti-Catholic proclivity of the overseers who caused it to happen.
Edgardo Montara became a Catholic priest.  Sounds like a happy ending to us.

Will there be a papal reaction to this film?  We can only hope not. 
[Catholic Herald] Oscar-winning actor Mark Rylance is to play the part of Pope Pius IX in a new film produced by Steven Spielberg.
The film tells the story of a Jewish boy in Italy in 1858 who is taken from his parents, raised Catholic and then becomes a priest.
The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara is expected to go into production at the start of 2017 and the filming will begin this summer.

Love, love, love SAINT Pio Nono. What a blessing these dogs are trying to imply he was a bad man.

Another "historical" "Swindler's list".
Mark my words, Francis (or his successor) will make reparations due to Pius IX's inhumane treatment of the -forced- convert.
Heck, it will be the new -go to- Lenten movie.
