In a secluded seaside town, four mysterious men live together in a small house on the shore with a woman who serves as their caretaker. Former priests who have been exiled to the quiet hamlet as punishment for, and protection from, their past sins, the men keep a strict daily schedule devoid of temptation and highlighted by time spent training their greyhound racing dog. When a new houseguest arrives from the outside world, quickly followed by an emissary sent by the Vatican, the fragile stability unravels and deeply buried secrets come to the surface. Masterfully directed by Chilean auteur Pablo Larraín (No), The Club is a taut, blackly comic critique of organized religion, individual responsibility, and the combustible combination of the two.
