Father Stu (2022)
The heartwarming biographical drama Father Stu stars Oscar nominee Mark Wahlberg (Unchartered) as Stuart Long, a boxer-turned-priest who inspired countless people during his journey from self-destruction to redemption.
Oscar winner Mel Gibson (Braveheart) and Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver (Yellowstone, Silver Linings Playbook) co-star, with the likes of Hollywood Walk of Famer Malcolm McDowell (Mozart in the Jungle) among the support cast.
At the 2023 Satellite Awards, Father Stu earned Wahlberg a nomination for Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama. As AV Club says, it’s “told with sensitivity, earnestness and no small amount of sly, rascally charm… a sure-handed match of material and a movie star’s strengths.”
