Martin Scorsese’s ‘Silence’ will qualify for 2016 awards season


Martin Scorsese’s upcoming movie Silence will be released in time to qualify for this year’s awards season. The period film, which Liam Neeson, Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver, will be released Stateside on December 23rd, 2016 before going wide in January 2017, making it available to Oscar voters for eligibility for the 2017 Academy Award ceremony.

Variety reports the news of the release. Here’s the plot for the Jay Cocks scripted drama:

A Japanese Catholic, Endo tells the story of two seventeenth-century missionaries attempting to shore up the oppressed Japanese Christian movement. Father Rodrigues has come to Japan to find the truth behind unthinkable rumors that his famous teacher Ferreira has renounced his faith. But after his arrival he discovers that the only way to help the brutally persecuted Christians may be to apostatize himself.

No news on a UK release as yet, but we’re doubting whether it will qualify for the BAFTA awards in the same year. If that changes, we’ll update you. Currently, a UK release date has not been set.
