1951. France. Dir: Robert Bresson. With Claude Leydu. 115 min.
A frail young priest faces apathy and rejection while struggling to make his mark in his new parish. Bresson employs sharp cinematic minimalism and subtle non-professional performances to shape a poetic and deeply spiritual (yet religiously ambiguous) experience. Co-sponsored by the Catholic Chaplaincy of the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life.
Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. Free.
