Secluded deep in the forests of Central Europe, a strictly devout Christian community is suffering a crisis of faith following a series of unsettling incidents and a devastating loss. When a young man stumbles onto their compound bearing scars of trauma, the community welcomes him in and nurses him back to health. He is slowly initiated into their farming life and scriptural regime, but the mystery of where he comes from only grows. After his actions avert a potential tragedy, the community puts him to the test as it desperately seeks answers.

Critic Reviews for Good Favour

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (1)

Daly succeeds at imagining the hardship and tarnished idealism of a religious community, but the film can't survive on ambience alone. It's missing answers.

You will certainly leave the cinema musing and reflecting about what you have just seen.

A unique and wonderfully unnerving beast that is ripe for interpretation.

Nov 14, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Like the community featured, this film is too slow to draw the public in.

Newcomer Vincent Romeo is a striking screen presence, hovering between vulnerable and predatory throughout. Mayer stands out in the supporting ensemble.

Aided by strong performances from the main cast (in particular the strikingly expressive Vincent Romeo), Good Favour is a powerful and gripping film that explores the deep complexities of faith and its consequences, particularly in the face of crisis.
