Twenty-year-old Daniel (a mesmerizing performance by Bartosz Bielenia) is a juvenile delinquent released from prison to go to a job in a small town. When Daniel arrives one quick lie allows him to be mistaken for the town’s new priest, a vocation he was drawn to but was told was impossible due to his criminal past. Embracing the deception, Daniel starts out faking it, but soon his passion and charisma have a moral impact on the community. At the same time, his unconventional sermons and unpriestly behavior raise suspicions among some of the townsfolk—even more so as he edges towards a dark secret that the community hasn't revealed in the confessional booth. Bielenia, winner of the Best Actor award at the Chicago Film Festival, makes an unforgettable impression with his piercing blue eyes and dynamic performance. A box office hit in Poland, Corpus Christi tells a riveting story of redemption, finding surprising room for religious faith amid the sins of the world. Academy Award nominee for Best International Feature Film! (Fully subtitled)
