The Novitiate, Rated R

From Rotten Tomatoes: Spanning over a decade from the early 1950s through to the mid-60s, Novitiate is about a young girl raised by a non- religious, single mother in rural Tennessee. A scholarship to Catholic school soon finds Cathleen drawn into 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 threatening the course of nuns’ lives. As she progresses from the postulant to the novitiate stage of training, she finds her faith repeatedly confronted and challenged by the harsh, often inhumane realities of being a servant of God. Cathleen finds herself struggling with issues of faith, sexuality, and recent changes in life of the Church. The film stars Margaret Qualley, Melissa Leo, Dianna Agron, and Denis O’Hare.

A discussion will follow the film for those who wish to stay. The film is free and all are welcome to attend.
