USA Today - 01/30/1998
"...THE APOSTLE is a good little movie dominated by a great central performance that's likely to endure..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 01/30/1998
"...THE APOSTLE sees its characters in an unusually perceptive light; they have the complexity and spontaneity of people in a documentary..."
After being squeezed out of his church by his ex-wife, a Texas fundamentalist preacher's alcohol-fueled rage sends him off the deep end. After beating her new beau into a coma, he flees to Louisiana and seizes the chance to reinvent himself as a devout "Apostle," founding a new church and captivating the citizenry while keeping his sins buried. Duvall, who also wrote and produced, is riveting in the title role. Academy Award Nominations: 1--Best Actor (Duvall).
