Heavenly Body (Italian: Corpo celeste) is a 2011 Italian drama film directed by Alice Rohrwacher.[1][2]


The film centers on a young girl's experience coming to age and receiving Confirmation. She is situated in a parish run by a corrupt priest, Don Mario, and his helpers. The film centers on her relationship not only to herself but an alienating world around her, and the Catholic Church which is a part of it.
