The Reckoning

The Reckoning Willem Dafoe (Shadow of the Vampire) and Paul Bettany (Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World) deliver powerful performances in this riveting story of temptation, murder and redemption.

Against the turbulent backdrop of England during the Middle Ages, a priest (Bettany), on the run from his disgraceful past, encounters a ragtag band of travelling actors who are searching for their next performance. Soon after arriving together at an unknown village, the troupe discovers that a mute woman has been sentenced to death for the murder of a local boy. To seek out the truth, the leader of the actors (Dafoe) decides to break tradition of performing biblical plays and stages a performance based on the alleged facts of the crime.

Suddenly, the stage becomes the setting for solving a spellbinding murder-mystery... one that will reveal the power of art, the temptation of evil and the ultimate cost of justice.
