NOVITIATE

NOVITIATE

Margaret Betts · USA · 2017 · 124 mins · PG
IMDbRotten Tomatoes

Spanning over a decade from the early 1950s through to the mid-60s, “Novitiate” is about a young girl's first experience with love. In this case, her first love is God. Raised by a non-religious, single mother in rural Tennessee, a scholarship to Catholic school soon finds Cathleen (Margaret Qualley) drawn into all the mystery and romanticism of a life devoted to the worship and servitude of God. With the dawn of the Vatican II era, radical changes in the Church are threating the course of nuns’ lives. Cathleen finds herself struggling with issues of faith, sexuality, and the changing administration. She finds her faith repeatedly confronted and challenged by the harsh, often inhumane realities of being a servant of God. --Mongrel Media

“Ritualistic and enthralling, with a complex feminism woven into its cloth, and it’s something of a blessing.”  The Globe and Mail
"A piercing, immersive, and superbly played convent drama.” Variety
Cast Dianna Agron, Margaret Qualley, Liana Liberato
