3 MONTHS BEFORE IT OPENS IN N.Y. AND L.A.!

REPRESENTING POLAND AT THE 2020 OSCARS

ON THE OSCAR SHORTLIST FOR BEST FOREIGN FILM

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

“An intelligent and provocative film which alternately charms and unsettles.” – Jennie Kermode, Eye for Film

NOT RATED, BUT THERE IS SOME VIOLENT AND SEXUAL CONTENT
