Storyline

Gregory Lind is the junior priest at Our Lady of the Assumption, a Catholic parish in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Life at the parish is not perfect for Greg, as he is beginning to have philosophical differences with the church, most specifically the senior parish priest, Father Paul Schaeffer. In dealing with the incident of one of his young parishioners - a student at the church's school, he who came from a less than privileged background unlike most parishioners - Greg meets social worker and divorcée Pamela Gibson, who is able to live in comfort the result of the divorce settlement. Despite their differences in how to deal with the incident in question, Greg and Pamela begin a sexual relationship. Having already questioned his career path prior to Pamela entering his life, Greg has to decide where the church and Pamela fit into his future. Written by Huggo

Should have been called The Priest and the Social Worker
19 January 2003 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Pieces of Dreams plays like an afterschool special writ large or an overambitious TV movie of the week. Robert Forster is the hip young priest in Alburquerque, Lauren Hutton the attractive young social worker, and together they make beautiful if decidedly profane music. Forster tries to balance his love for Hutton with his love for the Church, but must come to terms with his pledge of celibacy (a rule that the Monsignor, played by Will Geer, confidently predicts will soon be changed or eliminated!). The film tries to be honest and earnest but is predictable every step of the way, complete with happy ending and cloying theme song. There's even a acid head in granny glasses waiting to be saved by Forster. Overall, a relatively painless but not terribly inspiring 90 minutes.
