Two Movie Recommendations

Both of these are finely acted and deal with issues of faith and identity unfolding as mysteries in terms of choices to be made. Although there are glimpses of hope and redemption, they deal with some difficult realities, one with the Holocaust in Poland and one with clerical sexual abuse in Ireland. IDA, which is nominated for an Oscar as best foreign film, is set in 1960s in Poland and involves a young woman left as an infant and raised by a community of nuns. Upon approaching final profession within the community, she discovers she was from a Jewish family. CALVARY is set in a small town in Ireland and concerns a priest who is told in the confessional that within a week he will be killed by someone seeking revenge: someone who suffered sexual abuse as a child by another priest. Both of these likely available as ppv by your tv provider.
