Saving Grace


New Zealand 1997, 90 minutes
Dir. Costa Botes
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Drama

Topics: Stageplay, Religion.


Aroview: A kind of Jesus of Upper Cuba Street, this adaptation of Duncan Sarkies' stageplay ambitiously hammers a drama of poverty in inner-city Wellington onto a stark Christian allegory.

Results are rather patchy though, and despite quirky performances from Kirsty Hamilton and Jim Moriarty, as the carpenter with a Jesus-complex, most of the interesting ideas get lost in the final reckoning.
