NEW YORK — When you think about heroes of the faith, Billy Graham, John Wesley and others may come to mind. But in the film "Return to the Hiding Place," the sequel to "Hiding Place," viewers are given an intriguing look into the sacrifice of Corrie ten Boom, a brave woman who risks her life to help Jews escape the Nazi Holocaust. The film's lead actress, Rachel Spencer-Hewitt, opens up to The Christian Post about the impact that powerful women such as ten Boom can have on the generations to come.
"Return to the Hiding Place" chronicles a time in history when Nazis begin killing Jews in Holland and a group of youth fight to save the innocent. Spencer-Hewitt plays ten Boom's niece, Aty Van Woerdan, who is part of the student resistance against the Nazis and is engaged to the resistance leader.
Among the students is Hans Poley, an intelligent young physicist who finds refuge with ten Boom after refusing to join the Nazis. "Return to the Hiding Place" is inspired by Poley's book of the same name. Poley and his friends begin their resistance movement at their university, which eventually leads to the transportation of Jews to ten Boom's hiding place. more >>

Agent Peggy Carter is returning to the small screen on January 5, Tuesday. ABC is pairing it off with another Marvel show, the "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." Its two-hour premiere will feature Peggy's move to a more glamorous locale, Los Angeles.
According to a report in Collider, the show's official synopsis mentions that Agent Carter (Hayley Atwell) is making the move from New York City, which was the setting of Season 1, to the glitzy place that is Los Angeles. As a top-level agent of the Strategic Scientific Reserve, her move was naturally dictated by her new assignment. The synopsis said: "Peggy must now journey from New York City to Los Angeles for her most dangerous assignment yet. But even as she discovers new friends, a new home – and perhaps even a new love – she's about to find out that the bright lights of the post-war Hollywood mask a more sinister threat to everyone she is sworn to protect."
She continues her work but in a different era as the war is over and it is officially the Atomic Age with invention of the Atomic Bomb. According to another report in Movie News Guide, she also has to contend with the characteristics of a different locale. While Hollywood and Los Angeles may be more glamorous, the dangers that lurk underneath this glamour are very real and may, in fact, be bigger than what she has already encountered in her work. more >>
M. Night Shyamalan may be open for a season 2, but he is happy with how "Wayward Pines" season 1 ended.
While many Hollywood actors, as well as directors, are trying to do television crossovers, one good example of a director who has successfully transitioned into the TV business is none other than M. Night Shyamalan. Shyamalan made a mark in the horror genre when he directed films such as "The Sixth Sense," "Signs," and "The Village." It would only make sense that when he made his directorial debut on television with "Wayward Pines," the show also feautred horror and mystery.
"Wayward Pines" is based on the trilogy novel "Black Crouch." The show had been well received by many as the fast pace of the show left no dull moments for viewers. Starring Matt Dillon, alongside Oscar-winning Melissa Leo, Juliette Lewis, Oscar-nominated actor Terence Howards, and more, the series was definitely backed by a strong cast. However, for those familiar with the books, watching the show felt a bit too rushed, and many readers have criticized the show for cramming up all three books into one show. It is for this reason that many fans are hoping for more seasons, to see if the show will further explore the novels that they have come to love. more >>
