“An uplifting story that will fill you with hope and inspiration!”
- Dave Morales, FOX NEWS HOUSTON
“Mark Wahlberg gives one of the best performances of his career.”

- Jake Hamilton, FOX NEWS CHICAGO

Based on a true story, FATHER STU is an unflinchingly honest, funny and uplifting story about finding purpose in a most unexpected place. After surviving a terrible motorcycle accident, Stuart Long (Mark Wahlberg) wonders if he can use his second chance to help others find their way – and leads this former amateur boxer to the surprising realization that he is meant to be a priest. Despite a devasting health crisis and the skepticism of church officials and his estranged parents (Mel Gibson and Jacki Weaver), Stu pursues his vocation with courage and compassion, inspiring not only those closest to him, but countless others along the way.

I loved this movie.  Mark Wahlberg played an excellent part.  His character was so fantastic. I was happy to see Mel Gibson again.  He also was fantastic in the movie. The movie kept me interested and entertained throughout and there were no dragged out scenes.  I liked the movie so much, I wish it was longer.  This is one of those movies you have to watch more than once.
