Martin Scors­ese’s pas­sion project has noth­ing to do with gang­sters or Wall Street. For 25 years, he’s been work­ing on an adap­ta­tion of Shu¯saku Endo¯’s weighty his­tor­i­cal novel about Por­tuguese Je­suit priests in 17th-cen­tury Ja­pan. Two apos­tates (played by Adam Driver and An­drew Garfield) are tasked with in­ves­ti­gat­ing the mount­ing per­se­cu­tion fac­ing the Chris­tian com­mu­nity and lo­cat­ing a men­tor priest (Liam Nee­son) whose dis­ap­pear­ance may sig­nal a cri­sis both of and for the faith. A sin­is­ter story of frayed mas­culin­ity, cor­rup­tion and guilt, it’s clas­sic Scors­ese.
