From ACADEMY AWARD®-winning director Mel Gibson*, comes one of cinema’s most uniquely powerful films – the profoundly moving, uncompromising story about the final twelve hours in the life of Jesus Christ.  A filmmaking triumph, THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST was nominated for three OSCARS®**, including cinematography. The film begins in the Garden of Olives where Jesus has gone to pray after the Last Supper. Jesus must resist the temptations of Satan. Betrayed by Judas Iscariot, Jesus is then arrested and taken within the city walls of Jerusalem where leaders of the Pharisees confront him with accusations of blasphemy and his trial results in a condemnation to death. With inspiring performances from Jim Caviezel as Jesus and Monica Bellucci as Mary Magdalen, this new edition of THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST features English, Spanish and Portuguese language dubbed audio for the first time ever. *1995: Directing, Best Picture (Mel Gibson, Alan Ladd, Jr. and Bruce Davey, Producers), Braveheart **2004: Cinematography, Music (Original Score), Makeup
