In the seventeenth century, two Portuguese Jesuit priests (Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver) face violence and persecution when they travel to Japan to locate their mentor (Liam Neeson), who had committed apostasy after being tortured. The story takes place in the time of Kakure Kirishitan ("Hidden Christians") that followed the defeat of the Shimabara Rebellion (1637–1638) of Japanese Roman Catholics against the Tokugawa shogunate.

Was able to watch this this past Tuesday. Definitely a movie that will spark a lot of discussion amongst viewers.

I don't mind slow films, but long slow films aren't something I particularly enjoy. Would have enjoyed it a lot more if it was an hour shorter.
