The Palace Movie Club is delighted to invite you to be among the first audiences in Australia to see the 2020 Academy Award-nominee Corpus Christi, at a special First-Look Preview Screening on Wednesday, October 7.
20-year-old Daniel (Bartosz Bielenia, a major screen discovery) has found God whilst incarcerated in a youth detention centre, but his criminal record excludes him from entering the seminary. At the end of his sentence, he is sent to a small town to take up a position in a woodworking factory, but thanks to a stolen collar is mistakenly taken as the parish’s new clergyman. It’s a seemingly God-given opportunity for transformation, and Daniel – whilst wholly unconventional in his approach (and after a shaky start) – takes to the pulpit with a fervour and compassion that his predecessor has clearly lacked.
Inspired by true events, director Jan Komasa’s jaw-dropping drama is a remarkable tale of morality and redemption, about a charismatic young ex-convict who fooled an entire Polish village by falsely posing as a priest. Hailed by critics and audiences as the stand-out discovery of the 2019 Venice and Toronto Film Festivals, Corpus Christi became a box office sensation in Poland, overtaking Pawel Pawlikowski’s Cold War by achieving over 1.35 million admissions. It demands – and deserves – equal international attention.
