Gregory Lind is the junior priest at Our Lady of the Assumption, a Catholic parish in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Life at the parish is not perfect for Greg, as he is beginning to have philosophical differences with the church, most specifically the senior parish priest, Father Paul Schaeffer. In dealing with the incident of one of his young parishioners - a student at the church's school, he who came from a less than privileged background unlike most parishioners - Greg meets social worker and divorcée Pamela Gibson, who is able to live in comfort the result of the divorce settlement. Despite their differences in how to deal with the incident in question, Greg and Pamela begin a sexual relationship. Having already questioned his career path prior to Pamela entering his life, Greg has to decide where the church and Pamela fit into his future. Written by Huggo

Hip Man of the Cloth...or Little Boy Lost?
9 April 2010 | by moonspinner55See all my reviews

William E. Barrett's novel "The Wine and the Music" turned into trite Problem Solving movie of today (circa 1970). A young priest in Albuquerque is burdened with housewives who want to go on the Pill and teenagers who want to drop acid--but who is he to give holy advice when a pretty social worker has him contemplating his vows? Simple-minded drama, romanticizing then-current issues, has not a wisp of wit. The tinkly background score by Michel Legrand (and the Oscar-nominated title song co-written by Legrand with Alan & Marilyn Bergman) seems to belong to a different picture altogether, while Robert Forster (speaking in a laconic monotone) broods sexily, like a caged cat. Overall production (including a romantic montage at the lake and in the snow) is in the style of a cigarette advertisement. *1/2 from ****
