A small town cinema in rural Ireland becomes the setting for a dramatic struggle between faith and passion, Rome and Hollywood and a man and his conscience.
Father Barry (Martin Sheen) sees his chances of going back to Rome and completing his research studies thwarted by an overzealous Bishop (Tom Hickey), who likes to ascertain his authority and build new churches. Bored by the lack of intellectual challenges in his parish, and pressed to raise funds for the new church, Father Barry attempts to set up a new cinema in town. His novel ideas are ostracised by a local politician in the making (Stephen Rea), who is campaigning on an agenda of moral strictness. Convincing depiction of 1950′s Ireland in a sentimental and humorous movie with pillow-soft photography that charms.
(Ireland, 100 minutes, 2011)
