The film that takes off where ‘Spotlight’ finished. Not content with investigating historic child abuse scandals in the Catholic church, Francis Ozon released this drama around the trial of Cardinal Philippe Barbarin before the actual trial was finished. “Not a documentary exposé, as the filmmaker once intended, because that would do little more than reiterate the facts these brave men have already worked so hard to disseminate through the media. And certainly not a psychosexual thriller in the vein of Ozon’s previous work…No, this would have to be a sturdy portrait of everyday heroism – a sober but compelling drama that rewarded its real subjects by casting famous movie stars to play them on the big screen” – David Ehrlich, Indiewire.
