Review of Novitiate (2017) by Jluis_001 on 09 Jul 2018
Definitely a film to talk about after seeing it for questioning the two sides of the coin between faith and ideology, although it's tilted to one side more than the other and yet maintains to the end what I consider to be the best thematic of the film, which is that many religious people, who profess their faith in ways that are too devout, still have a long way to go to fully accept the modern world. It's evident that it was difficult in the time where this story is developed, it's well known that even in our century and decade, religion is still a burden on society when they don't want the rest to advance.
The interesting thing is that despite being in a certain way a global theme, the film knows how to keep things rooted in their characters and their internal conflicts and in the situations that surround them and are facing.
Much more solid than I expected and obviously is a recommended film.
