Review of by Tvjerry — 26 Nov 2017


This unique film takes place during the '60s, when Vatican II was changing the style of the Catholic Church. One young woman (Margaret Qualley) takes the ultimate step: becoming a nun. The film follows her as she progresses thru the stages of training, all the while questioning her faith and the harsh treatment of some of the women, especially by the Mother Superior (a complex and evil Melissa Leo).

This film provides a fascinating look inside a nunnery, but what makes it so potent is the intense scrutiny that's placed on so many characters and the uniformly magnificent jobs the actors do. While the narrative unfolds slowly, it's never dull.

Thanks to a intriguing story and excellent performances, this is a compelling look inside a convent and a group of characters.
