Story


A small town cinema in rural Ireland in the 1950s becomes the setting for a dramatic struggle between Rome and Hollywood, and a man and his conscience. Martin Sheen ("The Way," "The Departed," "The West Wing") stars as Father Daniel Berry in a story about the excitement of the unknown versus the security of the familiar, as those in the town find themselves on the cusp of the modern but still clinging to the traditions of church and a cultural identity forged in very different times.

by Jeannette Catsoulis [NY Times]
“..it's blarney with a twist..”
by John Anderson [Variety]
“..splendidly acted drama explores its themes with sensitivity, gentle humor and poignancy..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]
