Trailer for The Missionary.
In 1905, after 10 years of missionary work in Africa, the Rev. Charles Fortesque is recalled to England, where his bishop gives him his new assignment - to minister to London's prostitutes. Charles hopes Deborah, his fiancee, will object and give him an excuse to say no to the bishop. But she is so imperturbably innocent that she totally fails to understand what he is being asked to do, and urges him to do his best. Wealthy Lady Ames is expected to fund the work, but once she makes it clear to Charles that there will be no contribution unless he shares her bed...
Comedy legend Michael Palin (Monty Python’s Flying Circus) heads an all-star cast in this irresistible British comedy treat! In the early 20th Century, devout Reverend Charles Fortesque returns to England from his missionary work in Africa and, despite plans to marry his childhood sweetheart, receives a most unusual assignment: minister to the local prostitutes, located in the worst area of town. A wealthy married patron (two-time Academy Award winner Maggie Smith) offers to help improve his station, on the condition that he also minister to her… in the bedroom! A witty, delightful comedy of manners and misunderstandings, THE MISSIONARY delivers divine comedy to one and all!
It's 1913 and an ordinary schoolteacher, John Smith, dreams of adventures in time and space. But when lights in the sky herald the arrival of something strange and terrible, Smith's maid, Martha, has to convince him that he alone can save the world.
