Plot Summary

John Buerlein (Jeremy Sisto, "Law & Order") is the overworked, underpaid pastor at St. Mary Magdalene's Catholic Church. His quiet world turns upside down when a beautiful call girl, Linda (Kristin Chenoweth, Four Christmases) confesses that she is going to kill herself on her birthday, in less than a month. In search of this mysterious woman, John is drawn into a dark labyrinth of the city's sex shops, peep shows and brothels. Amid the growing doubt of his congregation and warnings from his mentor (Brian Baumgartner, "The Office") to cease and desist, John continues his descent into Linda's world to save a life-and possibly redeem his own.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A Catholic-themed indie of occasionally irreverent wit, Into Temptation is appropriately tough to resist. – Rob Nelson, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Into Temptation doesn't break ground as a story, even one about redemption. Even so, Coyle's understanding of the pastoral work of the parish priest is refreshing. – Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Into Temptation is a haunting, carefully crafted movie about a woman with mile-wide rips in her soul and the flawed priest who aims to save her. – Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

In2 Temptation

In2 Temptation is an EXCELLENT flick. The blurb makes it look like another action beat before the deadline" movie, but its quite different. In2 Temptation also has a killer soundtrack which I am looking for but unable to find. This may be a sleeper and sleepers are always good.

Into Temptation: Worth every cent

A beautiful, moving film. Despite the description, this is not your usual tale of the knight in shining armor rescuing the damsel in distress. The amazingly talented Kristin Chenoweth finally has a movie role worthy of her in Linda Salerno, the suicidal prostitute who prepares for death. I hope this signals the start of better film roles for her than the usual bit parts in Christmas movies.

Into Temptation- Brilliant

This film was beautifully written and crafted. It's not your stereotypical prince on a white horse saving woman from tower. There are unexpected twist and turns and you never know where they're going to lead you. Kristin Chenoweth's performance is divine. Personally, it's one of my favorite roles she has ever played. It's unique, and something you've never quite seen before. She performed the role brilliantly and she'll knock your socks off. I highly recommend watching and buying this movie. Trust me, you won't regret it.
