No, it’s not a Pure Flix movie, I swear! Though I did learn after talking with Surviving Confession‘s director Matthew Tibbenham, there was a brief period where the religion-centric production company was considered as an option for funding. Luckily the team behind this comedy-drama went the indie route. That was a good idea, considering this story about a priest in crisis isn’t exactly family friendly. Check out our interview below.
Surviving Confession is out July 30th on all major digital platforms: Google, Amazon Video, iTunes.
Father Morris is a dissatisfied priest who has not been happy with his job for some time. After hearing another unremorseful and untruthful confession from a parishioner who is cheating on his wife, a quick-witted teenager, Amber, comes into his confessional and starts to turn Father Morris’s life upside down. Amber questions everything Father Morris stands for, and begins to get under his skin in a way that hasn’t happened before. Throughout the evening, interesting characters pass through Father Morris’s confessional as he reflects on what matters most in life and continues to quip with Amber, who slowly reveals why she came to confession.
