Movie Pick

“A thoughtful and powerful movie like this needs some comfort food with depth — braised beef Bourguignon with a great red wine, perhaps a French Bergerac, from my hometown.” – Chef Didier Durand

By the Grace of God

Director: Francois Ozon
55th Chicago International Film Festival

In this gripping, ripped-from-the-headlines drama, the veteran French filmmaker (Frantz) chronicles the story of religious family man Alexandre (Melvil Poupaud) who is grappling with the sexual abuse he suffered as a child at the hands of a priest. Dramatizing real-world events, Ozon traces how Alexandre’s decision to divulge the details of his own experience prompts others to come forward, forcing the Catholic Church to take action against one of its own.

Streaming Details:
By The Grace of God is available to stream on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and VUDU from Music Box Films.
