An Awful Adaption of a Great Book
22 May 2003 | by gallenm1See all my reviews

This short film is an awful adaption of Father John MacNamee's excellent non-fiction book, Diary of a City Priest. In the film, Father MacNamee is shown conversing with various saints who appear to him in visions, making him seem like a schizophrenic, which he is not. Furthermore, the film ignores Father MacNamee's struggles with the Catholic Church, including his refusal to serve as a strike breaker during a Catholic School teachers' strike, a decision which resulted in his being exiled from the Cathedral where he worked to an inner city parish. Do yourself a favor, read the book, ignore the movie.
