Overview Few historical figures inspire more celebration than Ireland's St. Patrick. Many believe him to have been an Irishman who drove the snakes from Ireland, but neither is true. PATRICK offers a dramatic new look at one of the best-loved and least-understood icons of world religion. The story of the real St. Patrick is part adventure tale and part spiritual awakening, with the future saint rising from slave to liberator; learning to forgive and ultimately love his enemies; taking up a cause no one believed in; and finally lighting a fire that kept western civilization alive. PATRICK was filmed entirely on location in Ireland, and features commentary from Pulitzer Prize-winning author Frank McCourt as well as an Emmy-nominated soundtrack.
Community Description Ireland's Liam Neeson narrates this absorbing docudrama about St. Patrick. Shot in the Emerald Isle and featuring commentary by best-selling author Frank McCourt, the film chronicles the 5th century saint's life from his meager beginnings to his rise as a Catholic revolutionary who helped synthesize Christianity and Celtic tradition. The film also explores the facts behind the colorful religious icon's worldwide popularity.

Nicely Done Story of our Favorite Saint! Jul 8, 2009
So many stories of religious figures add Halos that make it all unbelievable to me but this telling of Patrick's story is well done, dramatic and informative. I like a good rebel story and this story of Patrick delivers. Patrick is played as an admirable hero. If you are curious about where Patrick came from, how he won the hearts, respect of Ireland or how he lived this is a fine telling of the story. Casting Liam Neeson (from Belfast) is a brilliant touch of Irish magic. Patrick
Well done Jun 14, 2009
Portrayal of Patrick's kidnapping to Ireland, followed by his escape, and returning home only to voluntarily return to Ireland. Documentary style at times glosses over periods of his life while going into deeper detail of others. Overall, conveys the material in an understandable way and who couldn't listen to Liam Neeson for hours!
Getting to know Patrick May 24, 2009
This video is an excellent reource on not only getting to know St. Patrick and the details and focus of his life but also as a resource of how to reach others with the Gospel of Christ.
A visually stunning and artistically done docudrama of Patrick Feb 13, 2009
Very artistically and beautifully done. There is so little primary documents on the legendary life of Patrick. This docudrama has compensated with visuals from the Emerald Island and beautifully done photography. The best DVD of Patrick that I have seen.
