IN THE NAME OF THE SON
AU NOM DU FILS
2013, Intramovies, 80 min, Belgium, France, Dir: Vincent Lannoo

Life is divine for devout Elisabeth (Astrid Whettnall), mother of two and host of the “Christian Hope Radio” show - until family tragedy brings a pedophile priest into her life. Faced with the Church’s dissembling about the problem, she takes matters - and guns - into her own hands on a violent crusade. The fifth feature from director Vincent Lannoo (VAMPIRES), this action-packed black comedy gleefully lobs grenades at religious hypocrisy without reducing believers to caricatures. In French with English subtitles.
