1429 – France is in political and religious uproar as members of the royal family battle for the throne. Then a peasant girl from a remote village gave her country the miracle it had been seeking = Joan of Arc would inspire and lead her countryman until her execution at the age of nineteen. Raised in a  religious family, Joan witnessed her sister’s rape and murder at the hands of an invading army.  Years later, as the same war raged on, Joan stood before her king with a message she swore had come from God:  Give her an army and she would, in God’s name, reclaim his diminished kingdom. But is the message real – or a delusion of a girl who life had been shattered?  Also stars Faye Dunaway and Dustin Hoffman.
