“Goodfellas,” “Taxi Driver,” “The Departed” and “Raging Bull” are just a few of the box office hits director Martin Scorsese is known for. Now he’s back with the film “Silence.” Cinema Buzz’s Shawn Edwards talks with the film’s Andrew Garfield about what it was like working with such an acclaimed director.
Two 17th-century Portuguese missionaries, Father Sebastian Rodrigues (Andrew Garfield) and Father Francisco Garupe (Adam Driver), embark on a perilous journey to Japan to find their missing mentor (Liam Neeson). While there, the two men minister to the Christian villagers who worship in secret. If caught by feudal lords or ruling samurai, they must renounce their faith or face a prolonged and agonizing death.
