Great Movies on St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi

These movies are also available at Amazon.  To give support to a great Catholic company, below are the links to Ignatius Press' site for these movies:

"Clare and Francis"

"Saint Francis"

Both movies are very good - fairly accurate - but people who know the lives of these saints will see differences or some inaccuracies.  I.E. in "Saint Franics", they have the two saints about the same age and playing together as children when in reality, St. Francis was 12 years older than St. Clare and they have Clare staying in a Benedictine monastery instead of her founding the Poor Ladies (as they were called then) in the church, San Damiano, that St. Francis rebuilt, etc.  But over all these are good movies.
