The latest from Xavier Giannoli—director of 2016 French Film Week favorite, Marguerite—The Apparition presents an elegant, thought-provoking, beautifully acted fable about the price of faith and the possibility of miracles in the modern world. Upon returning from a traumatic assignment in the Middle East, celebrated journalist Jacques (The Measure of a Man’s Vincent Lindon) is recruited by the Vatican to join a committee of scholars investigating the veracity of a saintly apparition in a small French village. Upon his arrival, he meets the young and sensitive Anna who claims to have personally witnessed the apparition of the Virgin Mary. Tasked with investigating Anna’s character and background, Jacques finds himself drawn into a web of supernatural and secular mysteries that challenge his most deeply held beliefs.
