Corpus Christi (2020 Oscar nominee)

By The Miniplex (other events)

8 Dates Through Mar 30, 2020

"A powerful, deservedly Oscar-nominated drama, and a launching pad for fresh-to-American-audiences young actor Bartosz Bielenia in the soul-contorting lead role." -VARIETY.  Loosely based on actual events, 2020 Oscar nominee 'Corpus Christi' (Best International Feature) is the story of 20-year-old Daniel, who experiences a spiritual transformation while living in a Youth Detention Center. He wants to become a priest, but is told this is impossible because of his criminal record. When he is sent to work at a carpenter's workshop in a small town, on arrival he dresses up as a priest and this unleashes a series of events that has him accidentally taking over the local parish. The arrival of the young, charismatic preacher is an opportunity for the local community to begin the healing process after a tragedy that happened there...

"This is a movie that wants you to think about what redemption really means... Corpus Christi doesn’t skimp on the humanity; the film earns the slow smiles it brings to your face." -Rolling Stone

"If Oscars were decided according to the speed with which voters flipped out when they stared into the eyes of the principal character, 'Corpus Christi' would be an easy winner... Neither a parable nor an allegory, yet image after image seems charged with intent." -New Yorker

"The film is an important one, but above all, it is an exceptionally pleasing and easy one to watch despite its density." -Film Threat

"Corpus Christi is all that and more: The knowledge and recognition of people and characters, the reflection of the hidden kindness and the evil disguised in good actions, the power of hate and what hate can cause." -Cinegarage
