Set in the 17th century, legendary director Scorsese’s latest film follows two young Portuguese Jesuits, Sebastião Rodrigues (Garfield) and Francisco Garrpe (Driver), who go to Japan, where the ruling shogunate has banned Catholicism. Urged on by their mentor, Father Cristóvão Ferriera (Neeson), they travel the country witnessing terrible persecution of their faith and facing very real personal danger. This dramatic tour de force is an obvious Oscar contender.
