CORPUS CHRISTI

POLAND

After leaving the violent Youth Detention Center, 20-year-old Daniel decides to pose as a parish priest, despite his lack of religious education. His spirit and passion inspire his small-town congregants, who have been unable to heal after the tragic accidental death of seven of their youth.

UNLIKELY

“Parasite” has this category locked up, so almost anything else is a non-starter. Even if that’s not the case and something does upset, it’ll likely be “Pain and Glory” and not “Corpus Christi.” The experts actually have it placed dead last, so the chances for it are not good.
