Francois Ozon's gripping drama follows three men who band together to dismantle the code of silence that continues to protect a priest who abused them decades ago. Based on events from the 2019 conviction of Cardinal Philippe Barbarin of Lyon for concealing the conduct of Father Bernard Preynat, BY THE GRACE OF GOD compassionately illustrates the varying effects of trauma on survivors and their families in this urgent portrait of resistance, the power of mobilization, and the mysteries of faith.Written by

This is a very important film, discussing important area of French politics. There is much care and great resolve for the things depicted on screen. I'm unsure if I could watch it again because it is a very hard film to watch, but I fascinated by the way it all unfolded. Great look in-depth
