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

Very disturbing and very well made movie on a highky touchy subject
This is a powerful and very disturbing movie based on true facts; the movie is extremely well directed and the key characters' performance is stunning.
The film throws a punch in the stomach without wallowing in the details of the sexual scandals, but rather focusing on the devastating consequences of sexual abuse had on children and on their subsequent lives. And, as if that weren't enough, another wave of emotional impact comes when the victims, after long internal struggle, decide to come out and denounce the facts to the public; this has bring massive tensions to themselves and their families.
Director and actors deliver an outside performance in rendering such deeply emotional situations in a very dramatic and realistic fashion.
You wonder walk out of the cinema without being profoundly touched by this story.
