Saturday Short

Film Poster

Below is the official trailer for the new Martin Scorsese film Silence (Paramount Pictures, 2016), which is to open in limited release later this month and more widely in January 2017. It was earlier screened by the National Board of Review, New York Film Critics Circle, and the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, as well as at the Vatican in Rome, Italy.

An historical drama, the film is based on a novel of the same name by Shusaku Endo (1923-1996), which relates the story of the persecution of two Portuguese Jesuit priests (played by Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver) who seek to find the missing missionary who was their mentor (played by Liam Neeson) and to minister to Christians in feudal 17th Century Japan, where the practice of Christianity is prohibited.
