Win double passes to the premiere screening of Father Stu

 In cinemas May 12, (check for classification: language warning).

Based on a true story, Father Stu is an unflinchingly honest, funny and ultimately uplifting drama about a lost soul who finds his purpose in a most unexpected place. When an injury ends his amateur boxing career, Stuart Long (Mark Wahlberg) moves to L.A. dreaming of stardom. While scraping by as a supermarket clerk, he meets Carmen (Teresa Ruiz), a Catholic Sunday school teacher who seems immune to his bad-boy charm. Determined to win her over, the longtime agnostic starts going to church to impress her. But surviving a terrible motorcycle accident leaves him wondering if he can use his second chance to help others find their way, leading to the surprising realisation that he is meant to be a Catholic priest.

Despite a devastating health crisis and the scepticism of Church officials and his estranged parents (Mel Gibson and Jacki Weaver), Stu pursues his vocation with courage and compassion, inspiring not only those closest to him but countless others along the way.

“Father Stu is for everyone — all walks of life, believers and non-believers alike,” said Mark Wahlberg on his Facebook page. “This is a true story about a real guy. There is strong language but we wanted this film to be honest and raw, and that’s how Stu spoke. This is a movie about tough mercy, and tough grace, but one that ultimately inspires and uplifts everyone who sees it.”
