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 realization that he is meant to be a Catholic priest.
Despite a devastating health crisis and the scepticism of Church officials and his divorced 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.
Witness the incredible story of the most unlikely priest. Mark Wahlberg, Jacki Weaver and Mel Gibson star in the inspiring true-life story Father Stu, in select cinemas from May 12.
