Nominated for 10 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, The Exorcist was both controversial and extremely popular from the moment it opened in 1973. An innocent girl (Linda Blair) is inhabited by a terrifying supernatural entity. Her mother (Ellen Burstyn), with frantic resolve, hires her two priests (Jason Miller and ax von Sydow) to come together in a battle with ultimate evil. One priest is full of doubt, while the other a rock of faith. To this day, The Exorcist leaves viewers breathless. Filmmaker Alexandre O. Philippe is working on a documentary about William Friedkin and The Exorcist and will discuss the film and his project.
