Enlightened Kingdom’s epic historical drama ‘The Lady of Heaven’ has made it to the big screen across the globe. The film that was produced by Eli King has overcome harsh backlash and criticism even before being officially released. With a global audience and many mixed feelings shared towards the film’s main narrative, ‘The Lady of Heaven’ has managed to capture the hearts of many on its opening day.
The story of Lady Fatima, the daughter of the prophet Muhammad, is lived through the action-packed religious film ‘The Lady of Heaven’ that was released to AMC theaters across the nation on December 10th. With much anticipation surrounding this controversial film, the movie in itself did not disappoint. The story of war, peace, and patience was passionately played out on screen, all while staying true to the tale of Lady Fatima and portraying her heart-wrenching story of terrorism and greed in terms of historical accuracy.
The film began a mere 1,400 years after Lady Fatima’s tragic death when her life succumbed to the hands of terrorism. The opening scenes show a young Iraqi boy and his town being overrun by the Islamic terrorist group, Isis. The town is in disarray as the group begins to torment the unprepared people of the community. A young Iraqi boy named Jamal later witnesses his mother’s death as Isis troops invade their small home. Jamal, who is played by Lucus Bond, is now an orphan boy and finds himself in the care of a heroic troop and his nurturing grandmother, Bibi.
Denise Black creates a heartwarming portrayal of the Iraqi grandmother, Bibi. As she narrates the story of Lady Fatima for the young and curious boy, the audience is brought back 1,400 years later to learn the life story of the heroic daughter of the prophet Muhammad.
History and religious buffs alike will be pleased by the accurately portrayed tale of Lady Fatima. With scenes of war, marriage, and tragic death, it is no wonder this story has been kept alive for over a thousand years in Iraqi culture. All details, even the landscapes and environment is shown in the movie, were filmed with accuracy and with a dedication to staying historically correct.
It was clear that a primary rule of this film was to abide by the traditional codes and show respect to the communities in which “The Lady” originates. Enlightened Kingdom held the production of the $15 million historical drama in the Caucasus region of Georgia and parts of London, England.
Along with visually appropriate filming locations, the movie showcases a star-studded cast. With features from Ray Fearon, Christopher Sciueref, Gabriel Cartade, who plays the character of Laith Lanrawi, and Albane Courtois, who depicts a young Lady Fatima. Viewers will be treated to scenes of realistic and rugged settings as well as authentic acting and strong dedication to sharing the religious story of Lady Fatima with the world throughout the entirety of the film.
You will want to experience this bittersweet story, that at the end of the day, is a lesson on the importance of having patience. Along with other messages, like straying away from greed and being content with what God has given you, there are many uplifting moments to look forward to. The audience will see the similarities between a world that was first struck with terrorism to the battle with modern-day terrorist groups around the world. Through Lady Fatima’s story, we can see how to overcome the evils in today’s world with grace and patience.
Above all, ‘The Lady of Heaven’ showcases the strength of finding peace and motivation in situations of tragedy. “The Lady’s story is a much-needed message of patience, hope and strength in a time of global uncertainty and hardship,” said executive producer Abdul-Malik Shlibak.
