Jeffrey Dean Morgan,
Michael, the son of a funeral director grows indifferent to his father and joins a Seminary. On his way to the course completion, he is overwhelmed by a strong lack of faith. His religious beliefs are further jolted when he sees a young girl haplessly dying in a road accident for whom he reluctantly performs the ritual to absolve her sins. His mentor still believes in him and urges him to go to Italy to take an exorcism course hoping that he it would strengthen his faith in Christianity. In Italy he attends a session from Father Xavier who soon becomes aware of his skepticism. As a result he sends him to an eminent Jesuit exorcist, Father Lucas, whose ways though questionable are quite effective. He witnesses the exorcism of a sixteen year old girl but still seems unconvinced.

The light was always outside the confessional box and would be switched off if someone was occupying the confessional by the priest or would be switched off if no priest was available. This is not a goof See more »
Don't be afraid.
Do you believe in sin?
There's nothing to believe.

What follows is inspired by true events. The opening credits evaporate. The T in Rite is shaped like a Christian cross. The t's in the end credits are the same. See more »
I Really have No idea why most of people have reacted negatively towards this movie. I believe that The Rite was the best Exorcism Movie After the Original, The Exorcist. On the Other hand though the only thing keeping the movie interesting is in fact, Anthony Hopkins. He was NEVER let me down. he has this ability to go into the depth of the character and become HIM. I don't think anyone is as good as him in this matter.the way that he is so relaxed while playing Father Lucas is fantastic , you actually get the idea that he is a priest !! The Directing not as good as acting. Felt a bit slow in the middle. and some stuff just didn't make sense to me.But the sound editing and the visual effect was really good for a low-budget film. Beside the character of Anthony Hopkins (Father Lucas), the rest of them don't seem to have a depth and meaning to it. The reporter's character is just so plain that you sort of forget about her in the middle !! I had very low expectations when i was going to see it, but after it changed my mind. And the fact that it is based of True events makes it more interesting and realistic. So don't expect and entertaining and Full-Action film, you should expect a film that gets you thinking, because thats what it did to me. OverAll: 7.5/10
