“Who could ever imagine that a film about nuns struggling to come to terms with the Second Vatican Council (aka Vatican II) might be sexy? But that’s exactly what Novitiate is, as well as being stylish, impressively performed and intellectually ambitious as it explores convent life in the early 1960s.” Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter.

Set in the early 1960s and during the era of Vatican II, a young woman in training to become a nun struggles with issues of faith, the changing church, and sexuality. Melissa Leo stars as the Mother Superior.
