The Briefest of Reviews from 1970

An excruciatingly predictable story about a priest who becomes involved with a beautiful woman (Lauren Hutton who – I hadn't realized before – was clearly the poor man's Faye Dunaway in 1970). Anyway, as you can imagine, the priest is questioning the way the church does things: contraception, celibacy, racism, etc. And then he questions himself and his commitment to god, his mother, etc. Blah blah blah. Robert Forster in 1970, though? What a hottie. Seriously. I had no idea.
