Each of them has been sent to this place to purge sins from the past, and must live according to a strict regime under the watchful eye of the caretaker, Sister Monica. The fragile stability of their routine is soon disrupted by the arrival of a fifth man, a newly-disgraced companion, who brings with him the secrets they thought deeply buried. An intense, psychological drama that takes to task the manifold abuses of the Catholic Church and its willingness to protect itself at all costs. “An original and brilliantly acted chamber drama in which Larrain’s fiercely political voice comes through as loud and clear as ever.” Scott Foundas, Variety. Un grupo de sacerdotes católicos viven aislados en una pequeña casa de un pueblo costero. Cada uno de ellos cometió un pecado que lo ha convertido en fugitivo; ahora deben vivir de acuerdo a un estricto régimen, bajo la atenta mirada de una mujer que los cuida. La frágil estabilidad de su rutina se verá interrumpida por la llegada de un nuevo compañero de desgracias, quien traerá consigo el pasado del cual todos creen haber escapado. Poco a poco saldrán a la luz los oscuros secretos de estos siervos de Dios, revelando sin piedad las contradicciones de la Iglesia Católica. “Con El Club, Pablo Larraín arremete de nuevo contra los poderes fácticos de su país, entregándonos además una obra de una fuerza visual y psicológica brutal.” Christian Sida, Letras Libres
