I will never understand what was so bad about this film or why it was one of the reasons why Katharine Hepburn briefly became box office poison (Before making one of the greatest comebacks ever with The Philadelphia Story). I found it to be a charming and wonderful romantic drama about a stuffy reverend of a small Scottish village who falls in love with a strange gypsy girl wandering in the nearby woods. Though they don't really like each other at first, she shows him the true meaning of compassion and she starts to fall in love with him. It's a striking film about expectations, initial biases, and overcoming those hurdles, while also providing a surprisingly heartfelt film that explores the nature of faith better than most other religious films. The Little Minister is one of the most underrated films in Katharine Hepburn's filmography that deserves proper critical re-evaluation.
