Summary

The Jewish Cardinal tells the amazing true story of Jean-Marie Lustiger, the son of Polish-Jewish immigrants, who maintained his cultural identity as a Jew even after converting to Catholicism at a young age, and later joining the priesthood. Quickly rising within the ranks of the Church, Lustiger was appointed Archbishop of Paris by Pope Jean Paul II--and found a new platform to celebrate his dual identity as a Catholic Jew, earning him both friends and enemies from both groups. When Carmelite nuns start building a convent within the cursed walls of Auschwitz, Lustiger finds himself a mediator between the two communities--and may be forced at last to choose his side.

Bonus short film: Kosher (10 minutes) / directed by Isabelle Stead.
