The Rite

American seminary student Michael Kovak (Colin O'Donoghue) is reluctantly enrolled in a new exorcism course at a Vatican-affiliated university in Italy that teaches priests how to distinguish between a genuine possession and mental illness. While there, Michael meets an unorthodox priest, Father Lucas (Anthony Hopkins), who teaches him about the darker side of his faith.

Inspired by true events.
