    Letters to Father Jacob
    A cold-blooded killer-cum-ex-convict finds grace and freedom from rage for the first time in her sad life in this gently wrought, subtle drama from Finnish director Klaus Härö. Murderer Leila (feminist writer Kaarina Hazard) experienced an overwhelming shock when the courts pardoned her following the first 12 years of a life sentence. At the suggestion of the prison warden, she ventures off to the modest, slightly dilapidated parsonage of a local cleric, elderly Father Jacob (Heikki Nousiainen). Jacob is rapidly losing his eyesight and therefore badly needs an assistant to help him compose letters to the parishioners who write to him and ask for his help. Leila perceives the letter-writing as silly and pointless, but humors the old man; in time, she finds the experience to be a source of nearly limitless personal renewal and spiritual redemption. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
