‘Fatima’ Coming to Digital Oct. 13, DVD Oct. 27 From Universal

Picturehouse’s historical drama Fatima will come out on digital Oct. 13 and DVD Oct. 27 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.

The film is based on the story of one of the Catholic Church’s most fabled places of pilgrimage. In 1917, outside the parish of Fátima, Portugal, a 10-year-old girl and her two younger cousins witness multiple visitations of the Virgin Mary, who tells them that only prayer and suffering will bring an end to World War I. Word of the sighting spreads across the country, inspiring religious pilgrims to flock to the site in hopes of witnessing a miracle. The film stars Goran Višnjić (Beginners), Joaquim de Almeida (“Queen of the South”), Stephanie Gil (Terminator: Dark Fate), Lúcia Moniz (Love, Actually), with Golden Globe nominee Sônia Braga (Aquarius) and Academy Award nominee Harvey Keitel (The Piano).

Fatima also features two songs from the world-renowned Italian operatic tenor and Grammy Award-nominee Andrea Bocelli. The songs, “Gloria” and lead single “Gratia Plena,” a new original song composed for the movie by Paolo Buonvino, are also featured on the film’s soundtrack album, which debuted at retailers nationwide on Aug. 28.
