Here’s a first look at Christian bale in the 13 Women of Nanjing:
“The movie 13 Flowers of Nanjing is set in 1937 in Nanjing, China during Sino-Japanese war, where a few brave refugees find sanctuary in a Church compound. The group, thrown together by the terrible chaos of war, risks their lives for the Church’s school children as they struggle to survive the violence and persecution brought on by the violent invasion of the city.”
Christian Bale plays the role of an American Catholic priest, that’s why he’s wearing a cassock.
