FATHER and FATHER (2018) is a fast-paced, character-driven comedy about two priests forced to go on the run after they hear a confession from a wounded Mob Boss. Besides saving their own skin, the Fathers task themselves with not only saving the Boss’ life, but his soul as well. In return, the Boss pledges to provide truth, penance and state’s evidence. As the Fathers dodge bullets and bad guys, they fall under the wrath of Church superiors who have always questioned their backgrounds and methods. They fight in the pews and on the church steps. They bust things up. They get heat from the diocese. They turn in their collars, then pick them up again because it’s the right thing to do. You’ve heard of the Long Arm of the Law, but how about the Long Arm of the Lord?
