Originall released as two-part television miniseries about the 15th century Catholic saint, this is a 1999 180-minute drama.
Born in France during the 100 Years War, Joan grows to be a strong and vigilant believer in a better future for her strife torn country.
Despite impoverished beginnings, her deep religious convictions lead her to believe in her destiny to lead France to freedom.
Joan's ability to rally the people is tested as she struggles to help the Dauphin Charles claim his throne and unite France against its English invaders.
France's Holy Inquisition puts Joan on trial for heresy, convicting her for the very religious beliefs that returned the King to power.
Nearly 500 years later, she is declared a saint.
Not only is this story credible, it's fairly compelling, although Saint Catherine shows up as an illusionary image.
