Movies explore religious extremes at Sundance

Prophet's PreyIf one word could sum up many of the religion-themed films at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, it could be “conversion.”

In director Justin Kelly’s “I Am Michael,” journalist Michael Glatze morphs from a sure-footed gay man to a straight conservative Christian attending Bible school.

Director Amy Berg’s documentary “Prophet’s Prey” looks into the workings of the FLDS Church where adherents of the faith leave behind multimillion-dollar homes and successful businesses to follow Warren Jeffs, who claimed to be a prophet of God to cover a multitude of sex crimes.
