"Lord of the Rings" star John Rhys-Davies is teaming up with Michelle Dockery of "Downton Abbey" on "Many Beautiful Things," a documentary about British missionary and artist Lilias Trotter.
Telling the little-known story of one of the greatest female artists of all time and why her name was almost lost to history, "Many Beautiful Things" will explore the life and vision of Trotter, whose faith bid her to make an ultimately stunning life decision. While Dockery was cast as the voice of Trotter in the documentary, The Christian Post learned exclusively that Rhys-Davies will play the voice of Trotter's teacher, John Ruskin.
Born into a wealthy family in London in 1853, Trotter grew up to be a learned artist in training under Ruskin, a leading art critic and prominent social thinker. However, at 26-years-old, Trotter was given an ultimatum by Ruskin. He told her he was willing to make her one of England's greatest living painters – if only she would abandon everything to her art. The film explores the aftermath of this ultimatum, leaving audiences to wonder, "Could you abandon a dream to pursue your true calling?" more >>
