The Jewish Cardinal :
" This historical drama tells the amazing true story of Jean-Marie Lustiger, who maintained his identity as a Jew even after converting to Catholicism and later joining the priesthood. Quickly rising within the ranks of the Church, Lustiger was appointed Archbishop of Paris by Pope Jean Paul II – and found a new platform to celebrate his dual identity as a Catholic Jew, earning him friends and enemies from both groups."
