The Rite (2011)

(PG-13) 113 mins

Synopsis: An American seminary student travels to Italy to take an exorcism course.

Director: Mikael Håfström

Writers: Michael PetroniMatt Baglio (book) (suggestion)

Stars: Colin O’DonoghueAnthony Hopkins and Ciarán Hinds 

Serious Jest:  (Free View)  O’Donoghue gives a great brooding performance, although I would have preferred a lead actor with more of a booming voice for the big “cast thee out” speeches…overall, solid performances by the entire cast, especially the exorcees (I know that’s not a real word).  However, I guess if you’ve seen one exorcism, you’ve seen ’em all…
