CHRISTIAN, the pilgrim and the story’s protagonist, must travel an obstacle-filled road wrought with unique, passionate, and even wicked characters on his road to the beautiful CELESTIAL CITY. The book is a clear allegory of the Christian life and deals with deep theological issues in a simple and powerful way. Audiences that love the book for its message, its simplicity, and its adventure will likely also love this film that remains true to Bunyan’s original story.
