A movie about St. Patrick has been added to Netflix just in time for Paddy's Day
I AM PATRICK is now on Netflix.
A movie about the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick himself, has been made available to Netflix users, just a few days out from the national holiday in his honour.
Starring John Ryhs-Davies (Gimli from Lord of the Rings) and narrated by Moe Dunford (Game of Thrones, Vikings), the film will tell the story of how Patrick opposed slavers, Irish kings, and possibly druids, but that his greatest fight was with the hostility he faced from his fellow Christians.
After a close friend exposed a dark secret of Patrick’s, it is believed he was ordered to leave his mission and return to Britain. He had to choose – obey God or obey man?
Damn. Sounds cool.
According to the official Netflix synopsis: "I AM PATRICK peels back centuries of legend and myth to tell the true story of Saint Patrick. Through historical re-enactments, expert interviews and Patrick's own writings, experience the journey from man to saint."

Somewhat sadly, the film is being released at a time when all St Patrick's Day parades in Ireland have been cancelled, due to the spread of coronavirus in the country, so, in terms of patriotic gestures, you could do worse than giving it a look at some stage over the coming days.
