Wondering why times are missing?

Novitiate

In the early '60s, during the era of the Second Vatican Council, a young woman enters her training to become a nun. While the Catholic Church struggles to adapt to the modern world, our protagonist grapples with issues of faith, the changing church and sexuality. There's a lot of coming-of-age drama and a touch of lesbian sex (enough to tick off the Catholic Legion of Decency), but the mix of introspective drama and religious history never quite gels. On a side note: Melissa Leo (Frozen River, The Fighter) makes for one scary Mother Superior. 123 minutes R.
