THE CLUB
2015, Music Box, 98 min, Chile, Dir: Pablo Larraín

An unassuming residence in a Chilean beach town serves as a retirement home for disgraced priests in this thought-provoking drama, a Silver Bear winner at the Berlin International Film Festival. When a new member to this club is confronted by a former victim of his misdeeds, the fallout results in a visit by Father Garcia (Marcel Alonso), who must balance his hope to save these souls with the need to protect the Catholic Church. “An original and brilliantly acted chamber drama in which Larraín’s fiercely political voice comes through as loud and clear as ever.” - Scott Foundas, Variety. In Spanish with English subtitles.
