It is not every day that a high-budget movie intent on portraying the brutality of Christian persecution is released. But that is exactly what has happened this New Year. 'Silence' stars Liam Neeson, Adam Garfield and Adam Driver, the movie follows two Jesuit priests who travel from Portugal to Japan in order to spread the gospel.
It is brutal, bloody and hard to watch. However, it accurately depicts many of the horrors that Christians are facing even today, and ushers the issue of religious persecution into the public gaze. Simply put, it is a must watch. Check out the trailer below.
