About the Movie
In this powerful faith-based drama from executive producer Terrence Malick (The Tree of Life), Martin Sheen (The West Wing, The Departed) stars as a local priest of a Latin American fishing village recovering from a tsunami that washed away dozens of elementary school students. Ten years later, a young villager drowns and miraculously comes back to life, making the whole town wonder if he is a sign from God.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A modest, but not maudlin, parable of hope about mustering the strength to vigorously plunge again into life's uncertainties after a devastating loss.
Fresh: This muted, moving small-scale tale of sorrow and faith will strike a chord with both the churchgoing crowd and aficionados of Malick's contemplative, theologically predisposed cinema.
Fresh: It's a strange brew: stark yet beautiful, urgent yet dreamlike.
Rotten: We keep waiting for the film to wash over us, and it never quite does.
Gorgeous, Haunting & Thought Provoking
Martin Sheen is a supporting role in this riveting film of loss, faith and sorrow. How we deal with loss and the questions we have of where God is when we are in sorrow, wait or loss are poetically filmed. See this movie.
