Good Favour

 
A young man stumbles out of the woods, wounded and desperate. A village of devout Christians welcomes him with open arms, nursing him back to health and giving him a place to stay. They don't know who he is or where he came from, and the children in the village follow him closely, as if he possessed some magical powers. Is he a force for good? Or is he a malevolent spirit tasked with punishing them for their sins and hypocrisy? These questions hang in the air in Rebecca Daly's Good Favour. Daly succeeds at imagining the hardship and tarnished idealism of a religious community. (Scott Tobias, Variety)
