    It's not often that a film changes history, but it's just possible that Irish writer-director John Deery's righteously energetic Conspiracy of Silence just might help alter the course of 21st century Catholicism.
  2. A challenging, thought-provoking debut that compassionately questions the relevance of celibacy in the Catholic Church.
  3. Reviewed by: Anita Gates

    Deery's modest drama is one big, obvious argument against the vow of celibacy for Roman Catholic priests, but it has heart.
  4. Want Jesuitical fineness of argument? Look elsewhere. This one merely answers the prayers of those looking for an argument.
  5. 50
    Touches on issues raised in "Bad Education," but without Pedro Almodovar's flamboyant elegance.
  6. Feels like a personal vendetta.
  7. 30
    A well-intentioned but ultimately incompetent Irish dud.
