Highly controversial in its native France, François Ozon’s (Frantz, Swimming Pool) brilliant new film follows the survivors of an ongoing child abuse scandal in the Catholic church as they seek justice. With deep compassion and sensitivity, we follow three very different real-life figures who revealed their trauma to expose the church’s conspiracy.
While the film is as absorbing as a political thriller, it sacrifices none of the human realities of surviving a broken childhood. Sincere, compassionate and morally righteous, Ozon has crafted a powerful and moving drama that bears comparison with Oscar-winner Spotlight as it shines a light on a shameful chapter in the church’s history.
