Retired priests from hell

Four enigmatic priests live together in a house by the dreary, windswept coast of Chile. On the surface they live a more or less normal life together, but when a drifter accuses one of them of sexual abuse, it soon becomes clear that things are not what they appear to be. Chilean auteur Pablo Larraín is really starting to build a name for himself on the global festival circuit, and with its stark and unflinching portrayal of the Catholic church, EL CLUB takes its place among TONY MANERO and NO as one of his finest films.
