THE GOOD CATHOLIC was inspired by the true story of Writer/Director Paul Shoulberg’s parents and serves as a tribute to Shoulberg’s recently deceased father Donald Shoulberg, who was a small town priest who fell in love with his mother who was a practicing nun. The film won the Panavision Spirit Award at the Santa Barbara Film Festival for Best Feature Film of 2017, as well as the Leonardo Da Vinci’s Horse Award for Best Screenplay at the Milan International Film Festival.
Daniel (Zachary Spicer) is a young, idealistic priest who loves his work. While he struggles to find the balance between the dueling philosophies of his mentors, no-nonsense Father Victor (Danny Glover), and a chain-smoking Franciscan Father Ollie (John C. McGinley), his passion for his calling never waivers. And then he meets Jane. After a chance encounter during a late-night confession, the mysterious Jane (Wrenn Schmidt), opens up Daniel’s world to an entirely different set of possibilities. And problems. As new bonds form and old ones are tested, Daniel must decide what his true calling really is — and whether or not he has the courage to answer it.
