Daniel is a young, idealistic priest who loves his work more than anything. While he struggles to find balance between the dueling philosophies of his mentors, Father Victor, an old school, no nonsense traditionalist, and Father Ollie, a chain smoking, carb addicted Franciscan, Daniel's passion for his calling never waivers. And then he meets Jane. After a chance encounter during a late night confession, the complicated and mysterious Jane, starts to open up Daniel's world to an entirely different set of possibilities. And problems. As new bonds form and old ones are tested, Daniel must decide what his true calling really is - and whether or not he has the courage to answer it.

Written and directed by Paul Shoulberg, “The Good Catholic” presents a light story about the serious conflict of determining one’s true calling. Though it has some contrivances, Shoulberg makes clear that Daniel has come to a crossroads. What once appeared to be his path in life is now compromised by Jane, and their growing relationship. The film gives equal balance to the attraction of both the secular world and the world of the church.
This is an unusual film in that it portrays what many would consider a forbidden romance. But the characters are not out to thumb their noses at establishment mores. An initial mutual attraction simply becomes something bigger. Jane serves as the catalyst for Daniel, causing him to vacillate between embracing the priesthood and abandoning his position for love. The other priests of the parish are the voices of conservatism and modernism, and provide Daniel with several intelligent points-of-view, but the ultimate decision rests with him alone.
There are no bonus features on the PG-13 rated Blu-ray release.
