It’s Lent, that 40-day-long Christian season of penitence and introspection leading up to the Easter holiday. On Fridays, you may choose to eat fish, but Monday is a great day to brush up on the particulars of the passion story. Check out “Son of God,” the feature film culled from the wildly successful cable television miniseries, “The Bible,” which broke records last year. While we know how this story ends, hunky Diogo Morgado (Jesus) is certainly inspiring (and easy on the eyes) as the Messiah. For show times and theaters, check local listings.
