The Story of Lilias Trotter- Victorian Age artist and missionary

 Lilias Trotter's story seems fascinating; she was a talented artist and missionary in the Victorian era. See  Also the movie has a connection to Wheaton College - see article at

I'm not sure if the movie will be widely released, but it is showing at Studio Movie Grill on one night, Thursday Feb. 11.  See  The movie is not a feature length, just a little over 1 hour, and will be shown from 7:30 to 8:40.  $10 

From Executive Producer Hisao Kurosawa, (Dreams, Ran), comes the untold story of one of the world’s greatest women artists and why her name was nearly lost to history.  Many Beautiful Things plunges viewers into the complex age of Victorian England to meet Lilias Trotter, a daring young woman who defied all norms by winning the favor of England’s top art critic, John Ruskin. In an era when women were thought incapable of producing high art, Ruskin promised that her work could be “immortal.” But with her legacy on the line, Lilias made a stunning decision that bids us to question the limits of sacrifice. As Lilias journeys to French Algeria in the late 1800’s to pioneer work with women and children as a single missionary, viewers are left to wonder, “Could you abandon a dream to pursue your true calling?” Featuring the voices of Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey) and John Rhys-Davies (Lord of the Rings, Indiana Jones). Directed by award-winning filmmaker Laura Waters Hinson (As We Forgive) with original music by Sleeping at Last.
