The Vatican and the Catholic Church has always been intriguing to me. There is a lot of history, cover-ups, etc. that make great stories for books and films. The Rite explores exorcism and is based on a true story. Synopsis:
Inspired by true events, “The Rite” follows skeptical seminary student Michael Kovak (Colin O’Donoghue), who reluctantly attends exorcism school at the Vatican. While in Rome, he meets an unorthodox priest, Father Lucas (Anthony Hopkins), who introduces him to the darker side of his faith.
The film also stars Alice Braga, Ciaran Hinds, Rutger Hauer, and Toby Jones.
The Rite is in theatres January 28, 2011.
