“Undeniably passionate” The New Yorker
Dazzler Media presents powerful drama Padre Pio, starring Shia LaBeouf and helmed by legendary director, Abel Ferrara, releasing in selected UK and Irish cinemas from 26 January.
BAFTA winner Shia LaBeouf (Honey Boy, The Peanut Butter Falcon) gives an unforgettable performance in Padre Pio, the new film from legendary director, Abel Ferrara (Bad Lieutenant, King of New York).
It is the end of World War I and the young Italian soldiers are making their way back to San Giovanni Rotondo, a land of poverty, historic violence and the iron-clad rule of the church and its wealthy landowners. Families are desperate, the men are broken, but victorious.
Padre Pio (LaBeouf) also arrives to a remote Capuchin monastery, to begin his ministry evoking an aura of compelling charisma, saintliness, and storied visions of Jesus, Mary and the Devil himself. The eve of the first free election in Italy sets the stage for a historic, and metaphoric massacre, an apocalyptic event, one that changes the course of the world.
