Stella Days is screening in An Taibhdhearc as part of 100 Years of Cinema: Film & The Church on Saturday 19th March at 4.30pm.
The film directed by Thaddeus O’Sullivan, stars American actor Martin Sheen and is a pastoral drama about a scholar priest struggling to maintain authority in small-town 1950s Ireland. Sheen plays forward-thinking Father Barry, whose hopes of reappointment to Rome are dashed by tenacious Bishop Hegarty whose sole objective is to control the ‘hearts and minds’ of the dwindling population by building modernist churches designed to dominate horizons around the country.
