Critic Reviews for Into Temptation
Into Temptation doesn't break ground as a story, even one about redemption. Even so, Coyle's understanding of the pastoral work of the parish priest is refreshing.
A Catholic-themed indie of occasionally irreverent wit, Into Temptation is appropriately tough to resist.
Into Temptation is a haunting, carefully crafted movie about a woman with mile-wide rips in her soul and the flawed priest who aims to save her.
Into Temptation treats Catholocism - and its audience - with a great deal of respect.
Sharply constructed with a heavy spray of noirish aroma, Temptation is a uniquely accomplished indie film, wielding salacious material sensitively, building an intoxicating sense of intrigue and discomfort.
A modest, intelligent film.
Audience Reviews for Into Temptation
Jeremy Sisto plays an understated priest very well. He seemed comfortable with the faith depicted in the film and I found that refreshing. There is no love for or condemnation of the Catholic Church and that's also refreshing. Into Temptation (a bad title by the way) shows the Church plays an important role in people's lives and priests struggle with duty, obligation, loyalty, politics like everyone else but with a higher purpose. I had not planned to watch this movie but was drawn in when it came on after something else I watched on cable. I hadn't even planned to watch another movie so that tells you something about it's intrigue. It's very good.
I really, really liked this movie. Jeremy Sisto does a very good job. This is one of those movies that I never even heard of, but it turned out to be VERY interesting.
Heartbreakingly sad film about a woman seeking absolution from a priest unable to give it. Powerful emotions are in play with this multi-layered story that easily could have slid into a lurid sex tale but managed to stay above the fray. Explores the power of forgiveness and random acts of kindness that can change lives. Jeremy Sisto as the jaded priest who finds new purpose and Kristen Chenowith as the young woman were superb. The supporting cast performed ably and the dark streets of Minneapolis served as the backdrop for this morality tale. Surprisingly well done, and extremely tasteful, respectful treatment of a very sensitive subject. Wow!
