About the Movie

Maria and her profoundly Catholic family practice a radical version of the faith. With her confirmation approaching, Maria internalizes the Church’s strict messages more than ever, particularly that of the power of sacrifice. Determined to choose her faith over all else, Maria sets out to mirror Christ’s journey to his own crucifixion in a series of escalating sacrifices, attempting to please a God she worships unquestioningly. Steered by a domineering mother and willingly tethered to the autistic younger brother she adores, Maria refuses to let anything derail her, including Christian, a classmate whose innocent flirting could ruin everything. Captured in fourteen fixed-angle, single-shot tableaux, STATIONS OF THE CROSS is an indictment of fundamentalist faith and an articulation of one teen’s struggle to define her own life. Winner - Berlin Int'l Film Festival.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: An austere, beautifully filmed and powerfully acted portrait of extreme religious fervor that slyly flirts with comedy. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jul 9, 2015

Fresh: Newcomer Van Acken is a phenomenal find and she's never less than believably torn between doing the right thing and being her own person. – Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter, Jul 7, 2015

Fresh: The ending's a touch too cute, but the best scenes here stand as potent, empathetic, well-observed broadsides against fundamentalism. – Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice, Jul 7, 2015

Fresh: In the end, the formalism of "Stations of the Cross" wouldn't work at all without the work of van Acken, a very talented young lady who's not only in every scene, she's often all there is to every scene. – Brian Tallerico,, Jul 10, 2015
