Movie Summary

John Deery
Not Available
Ripped from today's headlines; Conspiracy of Silence is a controversial thriller that dares to ask the question - how far will the Catholic Church go to cover-up its own corruption? Set in modern day Ireland; Conspiracy of Silence begins with two seemingly unrelated events - the unexpected suicide of beloved and well-respected Father Frank Sweeny; and the expulsion of idealistic; young Seminary student; Daniel McLaughlin. Local investigative reporter; David Foley; aggressively pursues the two stories and begins to uncover a deadly secret that links both incidents and leads directly up to the highest ranks of the Church. His suspicions are confirmed when he receives anonymous threats and is chased by mysterious and shadowy figures. As he digs deeper he unwillingly puts his and his young family's lives in grave danger. Meanwhile; Daniel is forced to make a decision that could haunt him forever - will he return to the Church and help cover-up its lies and deceit; or will he surrender all dreams of becoming a priest and return to the beautiful girl he left behind.moreless

Metacritic Score

  • 60

    The New York Times

    Deery's modest drama is one big, obvious argument against the vow of celibacy for Roman Catholic priests, but it has heart.

  • 50


    Deery lays out a story devoid of subtlety, in which characters are too easily pigeonholed and issues exist only in absolutes.

    Entertainment Weekly Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Want Jesuitical fineness of argument? Look elsewhere. This one merely answers the prayers of those looking for an argument.
