New film about St Philip Howard

Mary's Dowry Productions, an independent Catholic film company in England, has produced a film about one of our English Martyrs, St Philip Howard.

St Philip was imprisoned in the Tower of London by Queen Elizabeth I and died of dysentery after ten years in prison. As he was dying, he asked the Queen (his second cousin) for permission to see his wife and his son - who had been born after his imprisonment. The Queen refused unless he became a Protestant.

There are several other films in the pipeline.
