The 2019 Polish drama Corpus Christi is directed by Poland-born filmmaker Jan Komasa.
After spending years in a Warsaw prison for a violent crime, 20-year-old Daniel is released and sent to a remote village to work as a manual laborer. The job is designed to keep the ex-con busy, but Daniel has a higher calling. Over the course of his incarceration he has found Christ, and aspires to join the clergy – but his criminal record means no seminary will accept him. When Daniel arrives in town, one quick lie allows him to be mistaken for the town’s new priest, and he sets about leading his newfound flock. Though he has no training, his passion and charisma inspire the community. At the same time, his unconventional sermons and unpriestly behavior raise suspicions among some of the townsfolk…
The critically acclaimed film–it currently carries a 97% positive rating at reviews aggregator Rotten Tomatoes–arrives on disc and digital with a making-of featurette and a bonus short film, Komasa’s 2004 Nice to See You.
