Our take

Martin Scorsese’s adaptation of Shūsaku Endō’s eponymous novel is a harrowing epic of devotion and doubt. With a stellar cast featuring Adam Driver, Andrew Garfield, and Liam Neeson, this powerful period piece questions the lines between faith, ideology and colonialism in 16th-century Japan.
