ted teenager (Amber) comes into his confessional and starts to turn Father Morris’s life upside down. Amber questions everything Father Morris stands for, and begins to get under his skin in a way that hasn’t happened before. And no matter what he does, she just won’t leave!
When writer Nathan Shane Miller first brought SURVIVING CONFESSION to me, I was a little leery. I thought, “Really? A whole movie set in a confessional booth? How am I going to get through this one?” But my initial apprehension soon turned into excitement as I read the engaging script and couldn’t put it down. To spend an hour and a half with such interesting characters, and to have the veil of their innermost lives pulled back, was an surprising delight.
The story is at times laugh out loud hilarious and at other times so heartwrenching it makes one reflect on the choices they’ve made in their own lives. After reading the script, I knew it was something I had to bring to life so that others could enjoy it just as much as I did. I believe there is a large, hungry audience for this movie at film festivals and art house cinemas around the world. As one friend put it, “Who wouldn’t want to spend an hour in a confessional to hear the secret lives of others?“
I hope you enjoy this small film that so many people put their blood, sweat, and tears into. May it entertain you for a short while, and may it also change your life for the better in the long run.
