Deliver Us from Evil (2006)

This film was rightly nominated for an Academy Award. It is extraordinary rendition of a horrific subject.

The film personalizes what has become a very large statistic in the United States (and elsewhere) - Catholic clergy sexual abuse of children. What is unique is that this true story is told from the perspectives of victims, their parents, bishops, police, and the perpetrator himself, Father Ollie.

You will not watch this film unaffected and you will not emerge without very strong feelings against the institution of the Catholic Church and the current pope.
