In the year 2027, Brazil’s evangelical church runs everything. A dutiful but conflicted bureaucrat tries to help struggling couples stave off divorce, but trouble in her own marriage prompts a crisis of faith. With a hypnotic, neon-futurism visual style and a throbbing synth score, this prophetic drama questions romanticism and convention in equal measure. If you love Black Mirror, be sure to check out this stylish parable that skillfully melds futuristic religion with our current political anxiety.

 

"This is a shocking, wonderfully acted and surprisingly erotic film that leaves one with more questions than answers, like any good film that dares to tackle the vastness of faith should." - RogerEbert.com
