I was so hoping this was about the Augustin in Chicago...

I've always imagined St. Augustine to be black...

Aside from that, I think this looks really interesting. I would definitely see it.

I can't wait to see it :D St. Augustine is the best saint ever!

EDIT: I don't like the way they've portrayed St. Monica; she does not look or seem to act as humble and meek as she is known to be. Also, I concede on my previous point; St. Monica is actually the greatest saint ever.

Where do you get this idea that St. Monica is portrayed in such a way?  She has one line in the trailer and the only other time we see her is when she's embracing her son at the end.

This certainly looks worthwhile.

First- The trailer looks silly.  I wasn't aware that North Africans/Meditteranean folks were so white. 

Second- Why do the Latins pronounce his name as Uh-GUHS-tin instead of AH-goo-steen?

Third-  Blessed Augustin isn't accepted as a Saint throughout all of Eastern Orthodoxy.  Some say 'yes', some say 'no.'

Start reading more. He is an incredible saint and my appreciation and respect for him increased even more by reading his biography and his works. Don't believe the hype about the negative light the Orthodox Church sheds on him.

I'm not advocating ignoring his works; by all means read him.  However, the Orthodox Church has condemned some of his theology and, therefore, one has to be careful.  I think it's telling when the Reformers love reading and quoting him.  I think if you're an Eastern Orthodox Christian, you need to seriouly consider how and why the Church arrived at it's conclusions.

Augustinianism didn't become much of an issue until the Franks, but to solely focus on that rather than say his Confessions is disingenuous to say the least. The latter is one of the greatest Christian writings ever made and it's influence has hardly diminished.

But seriously I've never understood why the Orthodox Church has been so unfairly harsh towards St. Augustine. St. Jerome did alot more damage than him, yet he hardly gets a bad rap.

However then again the Orthodox Church would rather glorify saints like Nichols II and Justinian so...

Read his Confessions and then City of God.

Pretty much what Schultz said. I haven't read his On The Trinity yet, but it's on my to-do list.

Frankly City of God is very much worth reading, I enjoyed his take on Hell.

I don't think it's possible for me to read anymore than I already do. ;D But I thank you for the recommendation and think I'd better get a copy of Confessions. It's been on my to-read list for too long.

Third-  Blessed Augustin isn't accepted as a Saint throughout all of Eastern Orthodoxy.  Some say 'yes', some say 'no.'

They can choose to not accept his Sainthood all they want but the fact that an Ecumenical Council clearly stated that he is Saint would like to have a word with them. Plus, why do we blame Augustine for everything? He corrected many of the errors he made in his 'Retractions' and most of the heretical 'Augustinian' notions came not directly from St. Augustine but from Anselm's interpretation of the works of St. Augustine.
...Or it's just possible he's a mouthy young man on an internet forum.

As a recovering alcoholic I identify with Augustine very much, whether he is a saint or not.  I'm almost happy that he's not recognized as a saint by the OC.  It makes him that much more special to me and even easier to identify with.

I also admire his mother.  Isn't she the patron saint of alcoholics?

Well he was considered a Father of the Church at the 5th Ecumenical Council, but the system of canonization wasn't done until later. However the Fathers in that decree are saints so if the shoe fits.

Further evidence of how large his influence is, and like you said in a positive manner.

Honestly it would be better to question St. Jerome, who I believe was one of the princpal people involved in the Great Schism than St. Augustine. The former thought he knew better than the Church.

Blessed Augustin isn't accepted as a Saint throughout all of Eastern Orthodoxy.  Some say 'yes', some say 'no.'

To everyone who matters, it's a "yes." Can you find a "no" from before the 20th century?

Also, "Blessed" and "Saint" are synonymous. The used of the title "Blessed" to mean "not-quite-a-saint" is a Roman Catholic practice (DUN DUN DUN!).
