God Willing
(ITALY) – Rated PG
The No. 1 smash-hit comedy success of the 2015 Lavazza Italian Film Festival.
A wildly entertaining, multi award-winning story of an almighty battle of wills that pits a man with a God complex against the hip local priest. Tommaso is an esteemed and defiantly self-confident cardiac surgeon, and an unabashed atheist. The veneer of his perfect life is abruptly cracked when his only son Andrea announces – to his father’s great horror – his intention to abandon his medical studies to become a priest. Tommaso refuses to accept is son’s newfound vocation, and decides to ‘go undercover’ to expose the charismatic Father Don Petro, whom he is convinced has brainwashed his son.
