We saw nuns fighting to come to terms with the 2nd Vatican Council might be sexy? But that’s generally what Novitiate is, as well as being stylish, impressively edited and intellectually ambitious as it explores convent life in the early 1960s, capturing a earmarked historical jiffy when the Church underwent an irrevocable theological shift.
Spanning over a decade from the early 1950s through to the mid-60s, NOVITIATE is followed a young girl’s first experience with love. In this case, her first love is God. Raised by a vehemently non-religious, single mother in rural Tennessee, a scholarship to Catholic school soon discovers Cathleen drawn into all the secret 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. Cathleen discovers herself fighting with issues of sexuality, faith and the changing administration. As she develops from the postulant to the stage of training, she discovers her trust repeatedly faced and challenged by the harsh, often inhumane realities of being a menial of God.
