Hidden away in small town America, in an anemic parish on the brink of bankruptcy, Father Anthony Romano finds himself at a mid-career crisis in the wake of both his personal conflicts and the real world scandals that have left the Catholic Church an anathema to so many. When his junior colleague, a fundamentalist named Stephen, clashes with a prostitute who preys on Catholic priests, Anthony finds his private world invaded and his deepest secrets exposed by a modern day Mary Magdalene.

Terrific Acting
17 April 2009 | by (Long Beach, Califonia) – See all my reviews

Nick Chinlund got my attention years ago when he played Donnie Pfaster in two episodes of the X-Files. Evil seemed to ooze from every pore of the Pfaster character and it made for perhaps the most memorable character to come out of that long-running series. His tempered portrayal in Sinner of the conflicted Father Romano is very subtle and artful. And then there's Georgina Cates. Wow. This was my first exposure to this powerful actor and I'm looking forward to seeing more of her work! There were other just-right performances, too, including those by Tom Rogers as Officer Thomas and Michael E. Rodgers as the bad priest. And, last but not least, Brad Dourif doing Brad Douirif which is always O.K. with me.
