The French drama "The Apparition" stars Vincent Lindon and will be in select US theaters in September. Lindon plays a skeptical journalist hired by the Catholic church to validate a vision of the Virgin Mary. Lindon is particularly good at inhabiting the wounded male persona, as in "Mademoiselle Chambon" and "A Few Hours of Spring". One of my favorite actors. The Apparition Official Trailer
