The 2017 film Martin Luther: The Idea That Changed the World is a dramatic re-imagining of the life of Martin Luther’s life: the massive lightning storm that nearly killed him, the bleak self-punishment of his time in the monastery, the corruption that unleashed his anger, his trial before the most powerful man in Europe, and the staged kidnapping that helped him escape the death penalty.

Featuring dozens of historians from Europe and the Americas weighing in on the history of one of the greatest religious revolutions in the history of Christianity, the film stars Hugh Bonneville (“Downton Abbey”) as narrator and Padraic Delany “The Tudors,” “The Man Who Knew Infinity”) as Luther.
