Discover more favorite LDS themed movies and how to watch them in our Most Loved LDS Themed Movies posts.
17 Miracles (PG)
Grab the tissues because this movie will probably make you cry. A mix of true experiences from the Mormon Pioneers crossing the plains (Martin and Willie handcart companies).
Joseph Smith: Prophet of the Restoration (NR)
This movie doesn't flow like other movies, rather it's a combination of all the events of the restoration. My kids were really shocked when they saw the scenes with the tar and feathering and other persecutions. It is good for them to learn about how much the early saints had to suffer through and why they choose to do that (especially Joseph Smith). However, it is something to be aware of so you can talk about it together.
Saratov Approach (PG-13)
A true story of the 2 LDS missionaries kidnapped and beaten while serving in Russia. It really shows how you can still have faith and hope in the face of such a great trial. This one might make you cry as well. This movie is not really great for young kids because it is such a serious and intense movie.
Saints and Soldiers: The Void (PG-13)
The latest Saints and Soldiers movie available on Netflix. Jesse Owens struggles with racial prejudice among his own team as he tries to help them all survive. Takes place at the end of World War II.
Saints and Soldiers:Airborne Creed (PG-13)
A group of American paratroopers risk their lives after landing in enemy territory to save a group of French resistance fighters. Takes place during World War II.
Saints and Soldiers (PG-13)
The first of these movies- all based on real events during war. This one is about a small band of Allied soldiers trying to survive behind enemy lines. One of them is a U.S. soldier that had previously served as a missionary in the same area. During the movie they are trying to get information back to their supervisors so they can save thousands of lives.
Forever Strong (PG-13)
The star rugby player is sent to a reformatory for a DUI. While he is serving his sentence, a tough rival coach allows him to play for his team. This movie is said to show the importance of good values and making champions out of each player not just a champion team.
Heaven is Waiting (PG)
Ned, a long time grieving widow, has no plans to start dating again. He refuses to give his daughter's new boyfriend a chance so his daughter tries to set him up with their beautiful neighbor in hopes of him easing up on her boyfriend (also known as Midway to Heaven).
American Mormon (NR)
Two filmmakers travel around the U.S. asking people on the streets about their perception and misconceptions of Mormons. At only about 30 minutes, you could use this during a youth activity to show why it is important to include our church activities when talking about our daily lives to friends.
Meet the Mormons (soon)
Examines the diverse lives of six devout members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints found around the world including the U.S., Nepal, and Costa Rica. No official word when it will be on Netflix yet but we do know it is coming! Right now you can rent it through Amazon Instant Video, Google Play, iTunes, and other video on demand services as well as several visitor centers.
