CGiii Comment

The main story gets a little lost...which is a shame.

No [real] need for the brother's storyline...but, the invasion of the confession should have been played out more. It's a truly chilling scene.

Religion, tradition and sexuality will always be cause for concern...with more focus, this little film had the potential to scream out a rather important message!

The(ir) Blurb...

STILL DEVOUT follows 24 year old Ceci who embarks on a journey to grant her mother’s wish—to find healing in a church for Ceci’s brother suffering with severe mental illness. After Ceci's brother has a severe psychotic episode, Ceci is determined to gain peace in the family. A family driven by faith, love and desperation struggle as their clashing values and identities complicate the trip.
