Ooooh... A Film About Catholicism...?

When I first heard about The Rite, my heart sank. I was pretty sure that this would be something along the lines of The Exorcist and perhaps even shades of The Thorn Birds. I then started to hear positive things about it on the Catholic blogosphere, though the film seemed to have sunk without trace in secular circles, which is unusual, given that it stars Sir Anthony Hopkins.

The Reluctant Sinner has been to see the film and has given it a firm thumbs up - the review makes me even more keen to go and see it.

Though it is not without its problems such as a Seminarian becoming an Exorcist, but they do get some things right and I have mostly heard good things.
