"For the Greater Glory" is a soon-to-be-released movie starting Andy
Garcia, Peter O'Toole, Eva Longoria and other Hollwood A-listers.

It is the story of the little known (north of the border, anyway)
"Cristero's War" where the reactionary Catholic clergy, land owners and the
most backward section of the peasantry in Mexico launched a
counter-revolution against the gains of the Revolution, most notably
against the anti-clerical statutes of the 1917 Constitution that thoroughly
secularized Mexican society.

This film appears to be an homage to reaction of the worst sort and fits in
line with the latest attacks on secularism by the ruling class in both
Mexico and the United States.

Studio synopsis here:

decision to risk it all for family, faith and the very future of their
country, as the fimls adventure unfolds against the long-hidden, true story
of the 1920s Cristero War --­ the daring people's revolt that rocked 20th
Century North America."
