Movie Info

In the 1970s, boys at St. Vincent's, a Roman Catholic orphanage, are repeatedly victimized emotionally and physically by the brutal superintendent, Brother Lavin (Henry Czerny), as well as by other members of the clergy. One of Brother Lavin's abused charges is 10-year-old Kevin (Johnny Morina), who at one point tries to escape from a place that no one would ever make the mistake of calling a home. Eventually the orphanage's secrets are laid bare, but the church seeks to cover up the scandal.

Audience Reviews for The Boys of St. Vincent

  • Mar 06, 2016
    If you thought "Spotlight" was wrenching, get ready for a real gut punch from this Canadian drama about abuse in a church orphanage! The first two-hour part focuses on the abuse and the second part focuses on the fall out many years later as the children have grown into young adults. The injustice is transporting. The always excellent Henry Czerny gives a compelling performance as the overbearing Brother Lavin, the primary motivator at the orphanage. Johnny Morina is brilliant as one of the primary victims of the brothers. The film is a bit low-budget, apparently made for Canadian television, but is nevertheless well crafted. "The Boys of St. Vincent" is moving, terrifying and insightful. Highly recommended.

    Only seen the first movie in this 2-movie series...and it makes you want to see the second, "10 Years Later", for sure. Extremely sad but gripping drama about boys being molested by priests, and then given the cold shoulder by law enforcement once they come out and tell the truth. Definitely worth a watch
