Corpus Christi

Inspired by true events, Jan Komasa’s 2020 Academy Award-nominated drama CORPUS CHRISTI is a remarkable tale of morality and redemption, about a charismatic young ex-convict who fooled an entire Polish village by falsely posing as a priest.

Featuring a simply jaw-dropping lead performance from Bartosz Bielenia, Komasa’s disciplined and unflinching film astutely navigates themes of faith, virtue and forgiveness. Widely hailed by critics and audiences as the stand-out discovery of the 2019 Venice and Toronto Film Festivals, CORPUS CHRISTI became a box office sensation in Poland, overtaking Pawel Pawlikowski’s Cold War by achieving over 1.35 million admissions. It demands – and deserves – equal international attention.

In cinemas 22 October, with advance screenings 16-18 October
