Did you know some of the most popular LDS films in recent years are available to stream on Netflix? Whether you are looking for some positive movies for family night or just want to #sharegoodness, grab the popcorn and enjoy!
Joseph Smith: The Prophet of the Restoration
Released in 2005, this film depicting the life of Jospeh Smith was created to coincide with the church’s bicentennial celebrations of Smith’s birthday. Shown in visitor centers and released on DVD, the movie is not only available on Netflix, but YouTube and the Mormon Channel as well. The copy of the film now available is the 2011 revised version, which was edited to help those not familiar with the life of the Prophet to better understand it.
The Saratov Approach
The Saratov Approach was released in 2013 and tells the story of Elder Propst and Elder Tuttle, two LDS missionaries kidnapped and held for ransom for five days. It was called “one of the best in the Mormon film genre.”
The film is inspired by Larry Gelwix, famed Highland rugby coach and former LDS mission president. You can read Gelwix’s exclusive post with LDS Daily here.
Saints and Soldiers (Entire Collection)
In a story based on real events, a small band of Allied soldiers struggle behind enemy lines with information that could save thousands of lives. The entire collection, including 2012 sequel, Saints and Soldiers: Airborne Creed and the recent Saints and Soilders: The Void is also available.
If none of these tickle your fancy, you can always find great LDS films here.
