The Devil's Advocate

Film, Thrillers

Time Out says

Spiritual torment is written all over this excruciating adaptation of Morris West's bestselling tale of betrayal and redemption, with Mills as the monsignor investigating a dubious case for canonisation, and having a torrid time (quite apart from dying of cancer) as he uncovers evidence of a murky story. Filmed in English, peopled entirely by caricatures, risibly righteous in its attitude to homosexuality, the film rivals The Hiding Place as an example of misplaced religiosity.
