Novitiate - Blu-ray
- Drama, Blu-ray
A young woman struggles with issues of faith during her training to become a nun in the early ‘60s.
Raised by a non-religious, single mother in rural Tennessee in the 1950s, a scholarship to Catholic school soon finds Cathleen drawn into the mystery and romanticism of a life devoted to God. As she progresses from the postulant to the novitiate stage of training, she finds her faith repeatedly challenged by the harsh, often inhumane realities of being a servant of God. With the dawn of the Vatican II era, Cathleen finds herself struggling with issues of faith, sexuality and radical changes in the Church that threaten the course of nuns' lives.
