The Exorcism of Emily Rose

The Exorcism of Emily Rose

Directed by Scott Derrickson

In an extremely rare decision, the Catholic Church officially recognized the demonic possession of Emily Rose, a 19-year-old Minnesota college freshman. An exorcism was performed and recorded, and that recording played a pivotal role in the events that followed. Told in terrifying flashbacks, The Exorcism of Emily Rose chronicles the haunting trial of the priest accused of criminal negligence resulting in the death of the young girl believed to be possessed. Inspired by real events, the film traces the bitter and repressed single lawyer who takes on the task of defending Father Moore, who performed the controversial exorcism.

A lawyer takes on the negligent homicide case of a priest who performed an exorcism on a college student.
