Synopsis:
Francois Ozon's gripping true-life drama tells the story of three men who come together to dismantle the code of silence around historic abuse cases within the Catholic Church. Alexandre (Melville Poupaud) lives in Lyon with his wife and children. One day he learns by chance that the priest who abused him when he was in scouts is still working with children. He decides to take action and is soon joined by two other victims of the priest. Francois (Denis Menochet) and Emmanuel (Swann Arlaud). They band together to "lift the burden of silence" surrounding their ordeal. But the repercussions and consequences will leave no one unscathed.
Based on events from the 2019 conviction of Cardinal Philippe Barbarin of Lyon for concealing the conduct of Father Bernard Preynat, 'By the Grace of God ' is an urgent portrait of resistance.

Breaking the Code of Silence - By the Grace of God review by AA

Spoiler Alert
11/02/2020

A very thoughtful film covering the breaking of the code of silence that had shrouded the Catholic Church for years with regard to illegal sex with under aged boys.  Very thoughtfully told, but at the same getting the message across of what actually was happening, and how a group of victims got together to expose the scandal and rock the Catholic Church.
