Roland Joffe, director of "The Mission" (a movie about the Jesuit reductions that I hope that you've seen) is doing a new movie on St. Josemaria Escriva, founder of Opus Dei. Laurie Goodstein has the story in today's New York Times.
The project was initiated by a member of Opus Dei, is partly produced and financed by the group’s members and has enlisted an Opus Dei priest to consult on the set. News of the project has set off criticism among some former Opus Dei members that the movie will be little more than propaganda for the organization. But Mr. Joffé, in the first interview he has given about the film, said that he had been given complete creative control and that Opus Dei never had any influence on the project
