Taglines: Sometimes silence is the deadliest sound.
Two Jesuit priests, Sebastião Rodrigues and Francis Garrpe, travel to seventeenth century Japan which has, under the Tokugawa shogunate, banned Catholicism and almost all foreign contact. There they witness the persecution of Japanese Christians at the hands of their own government which wishes to purge Japan of all western influence. Eventually the priests separate and Rodrigues travels the countryside, wondering why God remains silent while His children suffer.
Silence is an upcoming historical drama film directed by Martin Scorsese and written by Jay Cocks, based upon the 1966 novel of the same name by Shūsaku Endō. It stars Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver, Liam Neeson, Tadanobu Asano and Ciarán Hinds, and follows two seventeenth century priests who face persecution when they travel to Japan to locate their mentor and spread Christianity. The film is scheduled to be released on December 23, 2016 by Paramount Pictures.
