W Imię Dir: Malgoska Szumowska, Poland, 2012, 97 mins, Polish with English subtitles

Adam is a Catholic priest in rural Poland, working with troubled teenagers. Handsome and unconventional, the locals accept him as one of their own. But after meeting eccentric, silent Lukasz, son of a simple farming family, Father Adam faces a spiritual crisis. He wrestles with sexual feelings long suppressed as his attraction to soft-spoken Lukasz grows. Superbly acted, beautifully filmed in the lush Polish countryside, In the Name Of... asks important questions about faith, repression and the longing for love.
