Louis C. let me know about the upcoming Andy Garcia film For Greater Glory, about the Cristiada Rebellion against atheist President Plutarco Calles in Mexico in the 1920s. (Calles founded the PRN, which was the predecessor of the long-dominant PRI political party.) This film is quite unusual for Hollywood, given politics of the day. Andy Garcia plays General Enrique Gorostieta Velarde, who ironically was both anti-clerical and a freemason. (But he sympathized with the plight of the persecuted Catholics in Mexico.)
