THE EXPERIENCE

In signature Penny Lane-style, this film is funny, moving, and intelligently crafted. As a profound protagonist, director Penny Lane fearlessly capturing every facet of emotion in one of the most intimate experiences one can go through, illuminates the ragged but beautiful humanity around what it is to be the “Good Samaritan” when one is not a saint. We can be messy in our desire to be good.

ON SCREEN: Confessions of a Good Samaritan

2023. Directed by Penny Lane. Runtime: 105 minutes. Not Rated.
Director Penny Lane’s decision to become a “good Samaritan” by giving one of her kidneys to a stranger turns into a funny and moving personal quest to understand the nature of altruism. Confessions of a Good Samaritan is a provocative inquiry into the science, history, and ethics of organ transplantation, asking an ancient question in a whole new way: Who is your neighbor, and what do you owe them?

“By exploring the rewarding and self-affirming nature of altruism Penny Lane (one of the best documentary filmmakers working) may have created one of the best examinations of a modern society that wants to do good but also pat themselves hard on the back.” — Movie Madness Podcast
