    • Synopsis
    • Based on true events, Conspiracy of Silence tells the story of a young priest torn between the love for his girlfriend and his vocation to the Catholic Church. The film highlights the Church’s present-day dilemma on its ban on sex and enforced celibacy. The film provokes debate and calls into question the Vatican’s stance on celibacy. With a supberb British and Irish ensemble cast including Academy AwardTM winner Brenda Fricker, Hugh Bonneville, John Lynch and Sean McGinley, Conspiracy of Silence is a provocative, timely and highly-controversial drama set in Ireland. The film challenges celibacy and its implication for the Catholic Church in the 21st century.
