By the Grace of God 15

Sat 16 – Thu 21 Nov

★★★★ – IndieWire

Winner of the 2019 Berlinale Jury Grand Prix, Ozon’s new film is reminiscent of 2015’s Spotlight and marks a change of pace for the director, who eschews his usual black comedy for this moving true story of child sexual abuse in the French Catholic Church.

Family man Alexandre has a traumatic secret: as a young boy he was abused by priest Bernard Preynat. Unable to stay silent any longer Alexandre takes his case to the Cardinal, who professes ignorance over Preynat’s crimes. But as more men begin to testify, the Cardinal’s position becomes harder to sustain.

Dir: Francois Ozon
