Editorial Reviews

Peter begins having doubts about his calling as a Jesuit priest. Trading the mundane life of celibacy and servitude for a more stimulating one of wife and family begins to look appealing. Giving the priesthood one last try, Peter agrees to work at a mission on the Louisiana Gulf Coast. Life becomes even more confusing when he becomes attracted to Jill, a beautiful volunteer who returns his affections. Because of their circumstances, Jill and Peter find themselves at a crossroads in life; grappling with dreams, faith, and feelings not easily dismissed.

By K. Hughes on December 14, 2008
Alan Arkin and Frank Langella turn in their customary excellent performances in this Catholic coming-of-age dramady about a young man who isn't sure whether he wants to be a priest or a husband, but the real movie grace is wielded by Amy Acker (Angel, Alias) as the love interest whose sweetness isn't a byproduct of weakness but a sign of inner strength, one who doesn't fuss because she knows exactly what she needs to do and makes the necessary sacrifices to do it. She is what Joss Whedon calls a strong woman character.

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.

I'd watch Jacob Pitts eat paint.

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."

Despite the unoriginal title, Crossroads is a unique story of a young man's struggles with life's paradoxes. It charmingly tells a story of his choices and his exposure to many orginal characters that develop and influence his decision making. The acting is genuine from a mixed cast of journeyman thespians and rising stars. Its a wholesome film that leaves the viewer satisfied. Its salubrious. The world needs more stories like this. Bravo!

Love this movie. It evokes such strong emotion from me and is at times wonderfully melancholy and insightful.
