BY THE GRACE OF GOD tells the story of three adult men—Alexandre (Melvil Poupaud), François (Denis Ménochet), and Emmanuel (Swann Arlaud)—who band together to expose the code of silence that continues to enable a priest who abused them as boys. Their experiences powerfully illustrate the varying effects that the trauma of abuse causes on individuals and their families for years. The true story upon which the film is based is an ongoing scandal in France, with Philippe Barbarin, Cardinal of Lyon, convicted in March 2019 for concealing the conduct of Father Preynat.

"Not only is this film right up-to-date, but [Francois] Ozon has cleverly woven together these stories about real people into a narrative that has a driving but never strident sense of urgent, righteous anger."
Rich Cline - SHADOWS ON THE WALL

"This sensitively made film takes on an important topic - sexual abuse of children in Lyon by Catholic clergy - and makes a gripping and thought-provoking movie out of it."
Hannah Brown - JERUSALEM POST
