The Robe (1953) Rated UR

In the Roman province of Judah, a Roman tribune is ordered to crucify Christ, but after the fact, he has a guilty conscience. Starring Richard Burton, Jean Simmons, and Victor Mature.

This film is the first film shot in CinemaScope, a film that is shot widescreen to show on the widescreens in theaters. The story follows the Roman tribune as he wins Jesus’ robe, and then, the story follows the robe as it changes hands. The film is a great representation of Christianity. However, the writing and, at times, even the acting don’t bring out the emotions of the scene like they should. There are historical inaccuracies in the film, but that doesn’t distract from the film overall. It’s worth a watch.
