Scandi Club Finnish Movie Night  17 Mar 2023 Letters to Father Jacob : Kaarina Hazard, Heikki Nousiainen, Jukka Keinonen, Klaus Härö: Movies & TV

“Postia Pappi Jaakobille" ("Letters to Father Jacob") -- Finland 2009.

Academy Award-winning Director, Klaus Härö. Run time: 75 m. (English subtitles). Starring: Kaarina Hazard and Heikki Nousiainen.

Letters to Father Jacob is a sensitive, insightful exploration of the relationship of a pardoned, detached, angry murderer and the blind priest who employs her to read letters and compose responses to those requesting prayers and counsel. These two connect in unexpected, heart-warming ways. There are challenging but also touching scenes in this movie about personal transformation, growth, connection, grace, and reconciliation.
