The Cardinal | Full Movie | Movies Anywhere
- 2h 55m
A dedicated young American must face yearnings of the flesh, overcome his doubt and discover the courage of his convictions in the epic story of a young priest's rise to lead the College of Cardinals. Thomas Tryon, who later achieved fame as a blockbuster novelist, stars as the man who confronts racism in his native country, Nazis and the horrors of World War II, and the profoundly divisive social controversies of his time to become a Prince of the Church.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
The scenery is superb, the acting good: yet The Cardinal suggests neither the crises of the period, nor the anguished religious struggles it seeks to portray within the Catholic soul. Though the treatment is reverential, it lacks spiritual fiber.
