Synopsis: In this acclaimed adaptation of the first novel by legendary Southern writer Flannery O'Connor, John Huston brings to life a world of vivid, poetic American eccentricity. Brad Dourif, in an impassioned performance, is Hazel Motes, who, fresh out of the army, attempts to open the first Church Without Christ in the small town of Taulkinham. Populated with inspired performances that seem to spring right from O'Connor's pages, Huston's WISE BLOOD is an incisive portrait of spirituality and evangelicalism, as well as a faithful, loving evocation of one writer's vision.
