Stations of the Cross

Wednesday, October 7, 7:00 pm
Location: Metropolitan Community Church (MCC Rehoboth),19369 Plantation Road, Rehoboth Beach (map)
Admission: Donations are encouraged.

Fourteen year old Maria lives in the modern world but her heart is faithful to a Catholic radicalism that requires devotion at every turn. Isolated at home and outcast at school, she struggles to balance her own personal desires with the dictates of her family's faith. Attempting to please a God she worships unquestioningly, she make ever more dangerous sacrifices in the hope of curing the autistic brother she adores. Stations Of The Cross is both an indictment of fundamentalist faith and the articulation of a young girl’s yearning to determine her own destiny. In his review, film critic Stephen Holden of The New York Times says, Stations of the Cross is, “An austere, beautifully filmed and powerfully acted portrait of extreme religious fervor that slyly flirts with comedy.” [2014, Germany, Runtime: 107 minutes, German with English subtitles, Not Rated]

At the turn of the 19th century, a French couple have a daughter, Marie, who was born deaf and blind.

There, the idealistic Sister Marguerite sees in Marie a unique potential, and vows to bring her out of the darkness into which she was born. Based on true events, Marie's Story recounts the courageous journey of a young nun and the lives she would change forever. Writer Sean Axmaker of Seattle Weekly says, Marie's Story is lovely and sweet, sad and uplifting.... it satisfies nicely with vivid performances, beautiful imagery, and compassionate direction."
