Lively and instructive post film discussion with Jeff Bemiss
Father Adam is a Catholic priest who has been transferred from a parish in Warsaw to a parish in rural Poland. There, he heads a center for troubled teenage boys and tries to help the boys avoid the much harsher state detention system. Father Adam struggles with loneliness. He takes confession after confession, but has no one to turn to with his troubles, other than a sister in Toronto with whom he occasionally Skypes. Then Adam forms a special bond with one of the troubled teens, a boy named Lukasz.
“Outstanding performances! An atmosphere of danger and violence holds
the whole film in thrall.” — Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter
