Rated 100% on Rotten Tomatoes
 
Told in fourteen fixed-angle, single shot tableaux that parallel Christ’s journey to his own crucifixion, STATIONS OF THE CROSS is a chillingly austere tale of a 14-year old girl driven by an oppressively stringent religious upbringing.  It is a piercing examination of the interplay between fundamental dogma and family dysfunction, spiritual sacrifice and societal self-harm.
 
Passionate, generous, witty; Dietrich Bruggemann’s study of a fanatical Catholic family renews one’s faith in the power of slow art movies to change the world. ” – Charlotte O’Sullivan, London Evening Standard
 
STATIONS OF THE CROSS appears to acknowledge the miraculous, even as it descends into hell on Earth.” – Mark Kermode, Observer
 
The film showcases Lea Van Acken’s remarkable central performance and director Dietrich Br├╝ggemann’s adept control of a deliberately rigorous aesthetic. ” – Trevor Johnston, Time Out
