Luther is a new film about 16th century Protestant reformation leader Martin Luther, described by some as a rebel, a genius and a liberator. The movie is reminiscent of old-style Hollywood biopics, such as The Story of Louis Pasteur and The Life of Emile Zola. Los Angeles Times film critic Kenneth Turan has a review.
