Audience Reviews for The Hoodlum Priest


Knowing that this film is based on the life of a real man made this film come alive for me. What an admirable and difficult conviction, to sacrifice so much for people who don't appreciate it, and even abuse you for it, but continuing onward nonetheless. Truly inspiring.
