I saw the film yesterday, and it's interesting. It's like an extremely serious episode of Law and Order chock full of incredible guest stars. It's based on the true story of a priest (Tom Wilkenson) who was tried for murder after the death of a college student on whom he performed a Church-sanctioned exorcism. Although there's a lot of dumb trickery going on, it's also an interesting study of a skeptic (Laura Linney) changed by an encounter with spiritual evidence that she can't explain. And as a film that posits medicine and religion as fierce opposites – and, all the way through, takes religion's side – I have to wonder how it's going to be received. Watch the clips and let me know what you think.
