Confession is nothing more than a modern day remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s I Confess, as it leisurely lifts the “a devout priest is suspected of a crime that someone confessed to him about” plotline that Hitchcock invented. Confession merely changes the setting, placing nearly the entire movie inside the hallowed walls of a St. Michael’s Prep School.

It is here that Luther Scott (Pine) and his roommate Robbie (Behnken) get expelled from the school for breaking the school’s strict rules about ungodly items like booze, pornography, and a DVD of Jackass: The Movie. Luther is the one who ran the ring. Robbie was simply a loyal friend who sat around while it was all going on. With only a week until their parents unleash hell on them, Luther and Robbie are naturally ready for revenge against the student that told Father Thomas about their activities. When a harmless plot for fright causes the tattler to fall to his death, a distraught Luther runs to Father Michael Kelly (Daddo) to confess his sins. From there the police begin their investigation, with Kelly unable to give out any details due to his vow to God, and Luther working behind the scenes to frame Kelly and keep Robbie quiet.

It may not be original, but Confession is still a fantastic piece of independent filmmaking. The acting is the primary reason that Confession succeeds to such a high degree. Chris Pine plays the antagonist excellently. Other actors, like Cameron Dado and Lukas Behnken, dish out lesser performances that still deserve praise.

Confession does feel a little contrived at points. When the filmmakers bring the bloody robe into the picture, the film goes into a nosedive. This soon leads to a finale that is just too amateurish to be included in a film of this caliber.
DVD: Set to be included in the final product are an audio commentary and a behind the scenes featurette.
