Mark Dolson is an eager Catholic seminarian who throws himself-- body, mind, and emotion-- fully into everything he does. Father Tim Farley has fallen into a comfortable rut in his suburban parish, where he is loved and valued precisely because he doesn't make waves. Mark torments his teachers with unanswerable questions and unending intellectual debate. Father Farley relies on practiced clichés and vanilla humor to fill the air during the sermon slot of his morning services. When no other priest will take Mark on as a parish intern, the bishop gives him to Father Farley.
The pairing of Zeljko Ivanek and Jack Lemmon is perfect in this character-driven film. The characters are multi-layered, and the issues they wrestle with are as pertinent now as they were in 1984.
