The Jewish Cardinal

A drama based on the amazing true story of Jean-Marie Lustiger, the son of Polish Jewish immigrants, who maintained his cultural identity as a Jew while converting to Catholicism at a young age and later joining the priesthood. Quickly rising within the ranks of the Catholic Church, Lustiger is appointed Archbishop of Paris by Pope John Paul II and finds a new platform to celebrate his dual identity as a Catholic Jew, earning him both friends and enemies. When Carmelite nuns settle down to build a convent within Auschwitz, where his mother died, Lustiger finds himself a reluctant mediator between the two communities. Filled with strong performances and a fascinating look behind the scenes at the Vatican, The Jewish Cardinal swept honors and awards in France last year.

French, 90 min.
