While serving time for a violent crime, 20-year-old Daniel has found his life’s calling serving Christ. His unconventional charisma and genuine passion for the Word curry favor with the prison’s Catholic chaplain and qualify him to assist worship services. When a menacing addition to the facility threatens Daniel’s progress, the chaplain secures his timely release. Barred from attending seminary by his criminal record, Daniel is sent to work a dead-end job laboring in a small-town mill for the reformed. Upon arrival, he encounters a spiritually fractured community suffering from a series of interpersonal crises, dark secrets and hypocrisies, all actively undermining parish unity. The heavens clearly have plans for Daniel outside of the mill and, in good faith, he steps up to the altar to improvise answers for a community adrift without leadership.
"An intelligent and provocative film which alternately charms and unsettles, CORPUS CHRISTI is Poland's entry for the 2020 Best Foreign Language Oscar. It's a small-town drama with much bigger connotations and it thoroughly deserves its place on the world stage." —Jennie Kermode, Eye for Film "What is true faith and what's fakery is a question that runs through Polish director Jan Komasa's slow-burn drama CORPUS CHRISTI, its dark intensity channeled in a dynamically physical, wild-eyed performance from talented young lead Bartosz Bielenia. " —David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter "...An engrossing exploration of faith, second chances and the possibility of atonement." —Allan Hunter, Screen Daily
