Storyline

Two Jesuit priests, Sebastião Rodrigues and Francis Garrpe, travel to seventeenth century Japan which has, under the Tokugawa shogunate, banned Catholicism and almost all foreign contact. There they witness the persecution of Japanese Christians at the hands of their own government which wishes to purge Japan of all western influence. Eventually the priests separate and Rodrigues travels the countryside, wondering why God remains silent while His children suffer. Written by AxiomofEntropy

Trivia

Daniel Day-Lewis & Liam Neeson replaced one & another in projects that were both grounded in development for years. Neeson was primarily set to play in the role of Abraham Lincoln in Lincoln (2012) for years while it was stuck in development but when Neeson dropped out of the project, Day-Lewis eventually replaced him. Ironically, Neeson is replacing Day-Lewis in this film after Day-Lewis was initially set to play in the role of Father Ferreira in this film for years while it too was stuck in development.
