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.
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.
Rituals of the sect are fascinating in their detail and the director does well to lean on a cast of strikingly expressive actors to let much of the action play out on their faces, both individually and as a group.
... while [director Rebecca] Daly's latest further cements her as a master of mood, a more focused and engaging story would do her well next time around.
Slow moving as it is - and too open in its conclusion to fully satisfy most audiences - this is a film weighted with questions, balancing this burden with a luminous beauty.
Few narrative or thematic threads yield significant pay offs.
... a religious parable so delicate and placid that it practically lulls you to sleep.
