The supporting characters, a large number of them priests, do not descend into stereotype. They display strong sides and not so strong sides, but their shortcomings are explored with understanding and empathy. (Spoiler Alert) Orson Bean, whom we first meet as a cranky old problem priest, turns out to be a man of large and frustrated passion. Having spent 25 years in Africa serving the destitute, he is ordered back home as he approaches retirement age and assigned presumably less strenuous work -- work that he clearly despises. It's a fascinating portrait of a man whose Christianity is stymied by the humane and well-intended decisions of his bureaucracy, and his subsequent path of self-destruction manages to be appalling, hilarious and heartrending.
And Amy Acker transcends it all.
Not enough sex scenes with him - bad choice. Story unbelievable - if you can believe main character is struggling with what path to take and yet oozes "I'm ready to hit the sheets" with everyone in every scene (including the macaw )- then I have some swamp land to sell you.
But if you want a movie with Jacob P in every scene ( and I do) then it's worth watching. He's adorable, funny - good actor all around. But again, he couldn't overcome a script where the main plot is driven by his dilemma over whether to choose the life of a celibate or not , then.....no. This guy is raring to go . I just would have liked to see more of him going. One kiss with Amy Acker - c'mon!
But it was a pretty good kiss.
NOTE: if you sit down to watch "Crossroads" as advertised on your "old" movie channel and Brittany Spears is in first scene - you are watching wrong "Crossroads.". Pitt's movie is also called "The Novice."

I love this movie. It takes me places every time I watch it. I still pop it in and watch it every now and then.Published 21 months ago by Tim Pritchard
What a disappointment! This was categorized as a "Christian" movie, however, it WAS NOT! The language was foul and cheap with constant cursing. Read morePublished on September 19, 2013 by Shay V. Alexander
