A biopic of Richard Sipe. A former Benedictine monk and Catholic priest, trained as a psychotherapist to deal with the mental health problems of the clergy, Sipe eventually left the priesthood and in a series of provocative books helped reveal the truth behind celibacy and its connection to the sexual abuse of minors. He became an expert witness for the prosecution in hundreds of clergy abuse cases. Sipe appeared in dozens of documentaries and was the person The Boston Globe reporters called on for advice in SPOTLIGHT – the 2015 Academy Award Winner for Best Film. This is the first documentary to focus completely on Richard’s own journey. (A, S)
