The Best Easter Movies of All Time

Easter means different things to different people. For Christians, it is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who rose from the grave after dying for the sins of all the world.

For others, it is a secular holiday that involves nice dinners and chocolate Easter bunnies. For kids, it is all about waiting for the Easter Bunny to come to visit them and then hunting for Easter eggs.

Here are Easter movies for all of those distinctive groups:

The Easter Promise & The Witness Season 1

 “The Easter Promise”

is a movie from the 1970s. The film was one of a series that followed the same family, featuring the character of Addie Mills. It’s a sentimental story and a classic to put on during the Easter season every year.
