Movie Review by Fr. Tom Condon, O.P.
Silence is the new film from acclaimed director Martin Scorsese. The film has been much anticipated in Catholic circles, since it tells the story of Jesuit missionaries in 17th Century Japan. Silence is adapted from the novel by Shusaku Endo and adapted for the screen by Scorsese and Jay Cocks. Scorsese has wanted to bring this story to the screen for many years. It has finally been released, and is well worth the wait.
