Summary

Title from container.

Based on the novel by Flannery O'Connor.

Originally released as a motion picture in 1979.

Special features: New interviews with actor Brad Dourif, writer Benedict Fitzgerald, and writer-producer Michael Fitzgerald; rare archival audio recording of author Flannery O'Connor reading her short story "A good man is hard to find;" a 26-min. episode of the television program "Creativity with Bill Moyers" from 1982, featuring director John Huston discussing his life and work; theatrical trailer; a booklet featuring an essay by author Francine Prose.

U.S. Army war veteran Hazel Motes may not be a believing Christian, but he somehow makes observations about the state of a run-down country church and understands that there are ridiculous frauds on the streets. Memories inspire him to take on the part of a traveling preacher when a cab driver insists he looks like one in his new hat. He starts his own new Church of Truth, without the crucified Jesus. His first disciple is an 18-year old simpleton with a 'prophetic gift.'
