The new film Father Stu is based on the true story of Stuart Long, a rough-around-the-edges boxer-turned-priest who died in 2014. Mark Wahlberg plays Fr. Stu in an Oscar-worthy performance, and Mel Gibson makes another entry in long list of broken father roles he has played in recent years.
James and Thomas review the film, discussing the pros and cons of the film’s gritty humor, and the depiction of Stu’s growth in spiritual maturity through suffering.
Father Stu is in theaters starting April 13.
