By the Grace of God

Grâce à Dieu

2018 - France - 137 min.

The monthly French Cinémathèque Series at the Avalon Theatre, in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, presents the screening of By the Grace of God by François Ozon.

By the Grace of God tells the story of three adult men—Alexandre (Melvil Poupaud), François (Denis Ménochet), and Emmanuel (Swann Arlaud)—who band together to expose the code of silence that continues to enable a priest who abused them as boys. Their experiences powerfully illustrate the varying effects that the trauma of abuse causes on individuals and their families for years.

The true story upon which the film is based is an ongoing scandal in France, with Philippe Barbarin, Cardinal of Lyon, convicted in March 2019 for concealing the conduct of Father Preynat.

In French with English subtitles.
