Poland’s entry for last year’s Best International Feature Oscar, Corpus Christi follows 20-year-old Daniel, a young offender who experiences a spiritual awakening while locked up in a Youth Detention Center. With his criminal record halting his dream of entering the priesthood, Daniel dons the cassock and collar he swiped from the reformatory and accidentally takes over a small town parish. The arrival of the young, charismatic preacher catalyzes the community’s healing following a local tragedy.

Corpus Christi is neither a parable nor an allegory, yet image after image seems charged with intent, from the opening shot… to the climax, an apocalyptic welter of fire and blood.” — Anthony Lane, The New Yorker
“Often moving but also disquieting and even intermittently funny, this drama unfurls a spiritual parable that is uniquely Polish but accessible to all.” — Leslie Felperin, Guardian
“Starring a complexly compelling Bartosz Bielenia, this is a blistering drama, intense, disturbing and inescapably thought-provoking, a film that gets its power from a merging of potent opposites.” — Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
