“Apostle” is set in 1905 and follows a Prodigal son (Stevens) as he ventures to an island to save his sister from a religious cult. The group is led by the charismatic Prophet Malcolm (Michael Sheen), who suspects the island’s new visitor might not be telling the truth about his identity. Lucy Boynton and Mark Lewis Jones co-star.
