Tom Holland (Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming) and Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead, The Wolf of Wall Street, Daredevil) star in director Brendan Muldowney’s new 13th century set thriller Pilgrimage. The film is making its debut at the Tribeca Film Festival 2017.
Synopsis: A small band of Catholic monks keep to a solemn routine on a remote Irish coast. Then a stranger arrives. He comes wearing the white robes of the Cistercian order, bearing papers, and demanding the unthinkable. The Irish have no room to argue. “Rome has spoken,” says the Cistercian. “There is no debate.” From this foreboding prologue, director Brendan Muldowney creates an extraordinary period drama crossed with action-laced road movie.
Travelling through a 13th-century Irish countryside filled with warring clans and Norman conquerors, the monks bring their land’s most sacred relic to Rome. The pilgrimage offers the group’s youngest member a profound lesson, one of religious fervor, and the savagery of men who see themselves as soldiers with a cause, who train their ambition on a single, powerful object.
