Movie with a nun and priest at St Michael's
27 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The beginning of this movie is very annoying I stopped watching it for awhile.

It takes place in front of St Michael's Church and Rectory. A movie is being filmed. The lead stars are actor/priest like Father Dowling and a nun like Sister Steve.

In the process of the filming the movie scene the two actors almost get run down by a car that is in the scene. They are in a murder mystery movie.

The director is a man named Cameron Price. He was hard for me to listen to. He was condensing to the actors, yelled at everyone, called them stupid and just flew into a rage. Every scene after that he was the same, rude and crude to everyone including Father Dowling. He goes into the where Father Dowling is and tries to take over. He later get murdered. That made me so happy.

They made his character too mean and nasty.

The end is a surprise when you find out why Prince was murdered.

But but, I am glad I did not have to listen to his yelling and screaming for almost 50 minutes.
