Movie Info

A comic fable centered around the lives of contemporary Catholic monks, A Question of Faith (once called Blessed Art Thou) follows Brother Anselm (M.E. Hackett), who suddenly finds himself pregnant. Living in a rural California monastery, Anselm believes the miracle was created out of a visit from Gabriel. The decades-old wisdom and beliefs of the order are tested as reactions to the events are a mix of sympathetic and hostile and the brothers find themselves at odds. The monks, both young and old, find that the line between reason and faith becomes blurred and their ancient traditions begin to crumble as the unexplainable miracle begins to change their perception of reality and themselves. Adapted from a short story by Tim Disney, great-nephew of Walt, the film also features Paul Guilfoyle, Naveen Andrews, and Daniel von Bargen.

Critic Reviews for A Question of Faith

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

A Question of Faith doesn't run very deep, or resonate with profound meaning. But as a thoughtful fable, laced with humor, the picture has its charms.

May 11, 2001

This parabolic drama asks us to reverence and embrace God's mysterious ways and to nurture a faith that is open to the inexplicable.

Glib religiosity sinks A Question of Faith.

May 11, 2001

Within the confines of the thin storyline, the actors did their best. But sometimes even your best isn't quite enough to save the day.
