New Movie about Fr. Marcial Maciel

According to several Mexican news outlets the Mexican Luis Urquiza will make his directorial debut with a movie called "Obediencia Perfecta" ("Perfect Obedience.") 

Scheduled for release during Holy Week, 2013, the movie allegedly will describe the life of Fr. Marcial Maciel, founder of the Legionaries of Christ in a fictionalized format. The actors Juan Manuel Bernal and Juan Carlos Colombo will play Maciel at different stages in his life.

Not a lot of information has been released about the movie which has been filmed in secret. The fortuitous timing of the release date with the resignation of Pope Benedict will no doubt enhance its success at the  box office while serving to cast more doubts about what and when the Vatican knew about Maciel.
