Screening over.

CORPUS CHRISTI (representing Poland) WAS NOMINATED FOR BEST INTERNATIONAL FILM AT THE 2020 OSCARS.

Rated 98% on Rotten Tomatoes

Based on a true story, a 20-year old violent offender passes himself off as a priest in a community still reeling from tragedy.

“Original and absorbing.   What is true faith and what’s fakery is a question that runs through Polish director Jan Komasa’s slow-burn drama CORPUS CHRISTI, its dark intensity channeled in a dynamically physical, wild-eyed performance from talented young lead Bartosz Bielenia.” – David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter

“Often moving but also disquieting…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.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

NOT RATED, BUT THERE IS SOME VIOLENT AND SEXUAL CONTENT

Language: Polish (English subtitles)

Length: 1 hr. 55 min.
