Kansas City's 'Procession' makes film critics' list of current films worth seeing
As the weather gets colder, it's a great time to sit down with a bowl of popcorn and watch a movie.
One deeply powerful movie on the Film Critics' list is the Netflix documentary "Procession."
The film brings together six men who were sexually abused by Catholic priests during their youth. It follows them and their use "drama therapy" to assist in their healing. It was filmed in Kansas City.
E. Michael Sandridge, one of the men featured in the documentary, says he hopes the movie helps people get an understanding of how one moment in someone's life can impact everything.
"Catholics need to stop being blind. Let's just get rid of the bad people in the church," Sandridge pleads. "It's just simple: believe the obvious, and let's get on, let's get healing done. And don't be afraid to talk about it."
