Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi


Scheduled to start Friday, Feb. 28


A jaw-droppingly deserving but unexpected Oscar nominee this year for Best International Feature Film, with an amazing  lead performance. CORPUS CHRISTI stars Bartosz Bielenia as a 20-year-old who experiences a spiritual transformation in a youth detention center. Though his crime denies him the opportunity to officially learn to serve as clergy, he pursues his dream by dressing as a priest and ministering a small-town parish. Anchored by a “dynamically physical, wild-eyed performance” (The Hollywood Reporter) from newcomer Bartosz Bielenia, CORPUS CHRISTI is an incisive, darkly humorous, and “engrossing exploration of faith, second chances and the possibility of atonement” (Screen Daily).  In Polish with English subtitles. Unrated.115 Min.
