Good Favour 2017
1h 41min | Drama | 9 November 2018 (Ireland)
Rebbeca Daly’s subtle and brilliantly realized parable , a teenage stranger welcomed into a household in a devout Catholic village gradually reveals his motives and what seem to be magical powers
Tom is all sickly white skin, wide eyes and sharp cheekbones; a face that seems alternately childlike and malevolent, but always hypnotic. It is these qualities that captivate the communityxe2x80x99s children, and his quietness allows them to project messianic qualities onto him. Are his apparently unhealing wounds the signs of Christ, and is his connection with 17-year-old Shoshanna (Clara Rugaard) sacred or sexual?
The power Tom amasses unnerves the communityxe2x80x99s leaders, but they have other issues to worry about. The darker side of their beliefs and their strict refusal to engage with the outside world has endangered their most vulnerable followers, and cracks are appearing in the villagersxe2x80x99 unified front.
