This film which is based on Catholic writer Piers Paul Read's book explores the struggles and experiences that a young monk has to go through. Eddie Dawson whose been brought up in a school run by priests goes on to become a priest but on a twist of fate has to go to the outside world. Once outside, the real challenges awaited Dawson. This film explores priesthood and the price that a person of a religious order has to go through when he becomes true to himself and expresses what he feels. It also touches on romance and the lustful intentions that human nature has a tendency for. Acting performances are commendable, found two familiar faces here like Lara Croft star Rhona Mitra who has a short but pronounced role.
