Martin Scorsese and co-screenwriter Jay Cocks' (The Age of Innocence) adaptation of Shūsaku Endō's acclaimed novel tells the extraordinary tale of two 17th-century Jesuit priests (Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver) who travel to Japan in search of their mentor (Liam Neeson).

He is rumoured to have committed apostasy and turned his back on the church. A breathtakingly beautiful film featuring an excellent cast, Scorsese's long-cherished project is a powerful and haunting meditation on the nature of faith.
