    Catholics and homophobes beware!

    This is a stunning film. The writing is inciteful as are the performances. It would have been so easy for Father Gregg to abandon his vows and take the easy way out. The screenwriter didn't let him do that and created a better film because of it. The only fault I could find was an incredibly minor one. The sappy music at the last scene was totally unworthy of the rest of the film. Buy this. You won't regret it.

    Anti-Catholic? Anti-Christian? That's not how I see it.

    For years we've been (rather unfairly) subjected to the Roman Catholic Church's eternal gripes about Hollywood and flicks focusing on faith. So far,it looks like they won't give it up anytime soon. First of all,just because this film focuses on a gay man of the cloth pitted against his fellow men of God. Fr. Greg's (Linus Roache) intentions seem well-meaning to me. When he learns of Lisa's problems,he wants to do something about it but the dogmas and doctrines of the church have him shackled. As he struggles to free himself from these shackles,I think he learns more about himself and eventually discovers heroism in his troubled soul. We may all be conflicted on more than one occaision in our lives but this film proves we have strength in the most important place of all:the human heart. Also,what give the church the right to declare which promises are sacred? Only the Supreme Being in the Heavens grants such permission. I don't care if you're Catholic,Protestant,Baptist,Lutherian,Orthodox,whatever. I think you should watch this film for the humanity and power. I'm sorry the Catholic Church compels itself and it's members to condemn films,books,etc. that actually point out former's faults and past mistakes. If you're a thinking person,this film will probably be your cup of tea. Meanwhile,use humanity and compassion more often in your life. Thank you.
