The Mission 1986

the mission

Robert “A Man For All Seasons” Bolt constructed a powerful screenplay for this big-budget drama in 1986, set in the world of colonial Jesuits priests. Jeremy Irons and Robert De Niro are the central characters, debating the merits of their religious work as the find themselves questioning the role of the church in South America. Liam Neeson and Aiden Quinn support, and even if the action isn’t quite an expansive as the locations might suggest, Roland Joffe’s film is a thought-provoking epic, a serious consideration of the role of civilized society, garnished with one of Ennio Morricone’s best scores.
