Grisley Grisell: A Tale of the Wars of the Roses {Review + Giveaway}

Industrious Family Films recently visited our parish for screening of their full length film followed by a meet and greet with the makers.  We weren't able to attend but we watched Grisley Grisell: A Talk of the Wars of the Roses, a movie based on the novel by Charlotte M. Younge, on DVD this afternoon. 

The production of Grisly Grisell admirably includes the entire family in its creation. It invites the audience to explore the lesser known intrigues of 15th century English monarchy.

Industrious Family Films has produced other movies as well including Outlaws of Ravenhurst and Max & Carlota: A Catholic Love Story

I look forward to seeing what they come up with next!

  10. I’m in the process of getting my kids a good Catholic movie collection. Since I’m not one of those awesome moms who can forbid tv all together, I’m hoping to fill them with good Catholic content. Thank you for this giveaway opportunity and letting me know about these movies.

  12. Besides homeschooling 6 kids, I am the youth leader at our parish (middle and high school). I showed the youth a video about Maria Goretti and it really impacted them.

  13. Our mom forbid tv altogether for a little while. That’s why we started making films so that children who share our values would have something to watch. I really hope you all enjoy the movies!
