1964. Cathleen Harris, in her late teens, has resided at the Convent of the Beloved Rose in her home state in the American south for close to two years, first as a postulant for six months, before taking her first vows to become a novice. Unlike the other postulants and novices, Sister Cathleen was raised in a household without religion, let alone Catholicism. As such, her decision to become a nun, which went against her divorced mother's wishes, may be more secure in her mind than her colleagues for which this life course may be more bred within them. The convent is led by the Mother Abbess, Reverend Mother Marie Saint Clare, whose entire life is this convent off of where she not stepped foot in forty years. Reverend Mother believes she is the voice of God within the walls of the convent, and thus does not tolerate any of the sisters questioning her authority. She also believes that the Catholicism which she has known all her life is perfect. When she receives an edict regarding the Second Vatican Council - more commonly referred to as Vatican II - which, opened in 1962 as a process to make the Catholic church more open to modern ideals, she refuses to implement any of the changes, let alone discuss the edict with any of the sisters, especially with the likes of Sister Mary Grace, the Mistress of Postulants and Novices who has more contemporary views of the church. Sister Cathleen's drive to become a nun is set against this backdrop, her process which is not as easy as it appears to the others, and whether she makes it to nun is affected by the Reverend Mother's strict methods and refusal to modernize.

I saw this movie about a year ago and the only thing I can say is that I can't find it in my heart to find fault. This movie is not perfect, but it is a powerful movie about the power of the human spirit and the power of being in the world. The performances by the actors in this movie are absolutely outstanding. Sean Penn was amazing and I found myself almost crying in the movie. His acting is amazing. I really don't know what to say about this movie. The music is fantastic. This movie is not perfect, but it is a good movie.

The Roman Catholic Church in Ireland, was a way of life for the lower classes in Ireland and the poor peasantry in the rural areas. The Catholic Church provided protection to the poor and downtrodden and gave them a sense of meaning in their lives. The priests and nuns were not for the rich or the powerful, but for the poor, downtrodden and the common people. This film portrays the life of the nuns and priests in Ireland and how they live and do their work. The film is set in rural Ireland. The film was shot in the mid-1970's. The film was directed by Geraldine McEwan. The film stars Jodie Foster as Mother Superior. The film is a beautiful and sad film. It shows the hard lives of the nuns and priests. The film is a must see for those who love movies and Irish history.

I really enjoyed this movie. It's a little more dark than I expected and a little more lyrical than I expected. I found it to be very powerful and emotional. The story is interesting, the actors are great, and the story is engaging. I think I would like this movie a lot more if I knew more about it. There is a scene that is very disturbing and disturbing in a good way. It's a good example of the difference between art and entertainment. I think the movie should have been rated NC-17 because it really is not for the faint of heart.

First of all, the movie is a good drama about a family of ten who has had their lives turned upside down by a series of events that happened years ago. The story goes on and on about the bad things that happened and how their lives went wrong. The story also is not that much about the abuse. The acting is great, but this is the movie that it is the best of the two. I mean, I didn't really like the acting of the kids, but they did a good job and they are all great actors. The story is good, but the ending is bad. The ending is stupid and makes no sense. I think it is a real shame that a movie like this gets the credit it deserves, but it is not the best of the two. I give it a 7 out of 10.

When I saw the cover of this film I thought it would be a good one to watch, but then I realized it was actually directed by the writer of "The Master". I really didn't know what to expect, but it turned out to be a pretty good film. It's definitely not a movie for everyone, but I think anyone who is looking for a decent film to watch will like it. If you have seen the Master, then you know that there are things in this film that aren't in the Master. But if you haven't seen the Master then you might have a better idea of what to expect. I don't think I would watch this film again, but I'm not complaining. It's worth a watch, and I think it's worth more than what I paid for it.

I've heard people say "this is the worst movie I've ever seen" and that it's really too weird and crazy for people. Well, if you have to explain it to somebody, you might as well explain it to yourself. The movie is about a teacher (Cameron Diaz) who is trying to stay sober and keep a low profile. She meets a guy (Ben Foster) who is her student. She then goes out on a date with him and has a relationship with him. He's supposed to be her "mastermind" but it's really a brother-in-law thing. The teacher keeps writing her a letter every month, telling her how important she is and what a great person she is. Her husband (Ben Affleck) thinks she's nuts but they continue to keep in touch. She gets a job as a nurse at a nursing home and she's in a relationship with a nurse (Anne Hathaway) who is the ward nurse. She's trying to be sober while she's away. Her husband doesn't think she's a good teacher but she does it anyway. And then she meets another teacher (Lauren Graham) who is also sober. The movie is pretty unrealistic, but it's a good movie. It's about human relationships and what we are willing to do to stay sober. I recommend it.

Morte a mecenar, an interesting look into a weird family. The movie has a lot of humor, I liked how they made the father into the devil, and the movie has a lot of action. The only problem is that there are so many characters in this movie, it's hard to keep track of all the things going on. I recommend this movie for people who like their horror movies a little more serious. 7/10

This movie is a bit of a cult classic, it's an art film, and I think it is one of the best. It was made for TV, and it's a documentary style film about a band called "Disclosure" made in 1974. I'm not a big fan of the music, but I do like the cinematography and the style of the film. The story follows the life of the band members, who are lead by a writer, David Webb Peoples. The band is in a creative slump, and their music is not making much of an impact. They are forced to make an album for the B-side of their first LP, when they have a great song, but the record company refuses to release it. The band members start making up stories about the band's past and trying to re-create it. They all end up meeting a guy called Malcolm from a rock band called "Elysian", and they get to see him play the band's first live performance. The film is shot in black and white, and the film was made in the 70s. The band members talk about the film, and how much it means to them. It is a real treat to watch a band like this, and see how they live their lives. It is an interesting story, and it is also an interesting film. It is a good movie to watch, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes art films, or just people who enjoy good films.

It's a classic to see a family who is trying to find a way to save their son's life. This movie is more or less the same. A father with a son who is struggling with cancer and needs to be in a hospital soon. There's also a sister in the family. She has a son who is a bit different. This film is similar to "The Butler", with the father and son, but the father here is just a bit different. It's a bit of a sad story. You really feel for him, but you can't help but wonder if he would really be able to do this, if he had a son like this. It's a bit of a waste of time to watch. But it is interesting to see the events from the parents' point of view. I guess it's an interesting movie to see a family trying to do something for their child. The father's role is interesting to see, but it's not much to do. But I would recommend it to anyone who is curious about the subject. 7/10

This movie is a bit of a slow burn, so I won't say much about it. I can say that it is not a movie I would want to watch a third time, but I would recommend watching it again if you are a fan of the film. I found the acting quite good and the story a little convoluted. There is nothing wrong with this movie, but it has no real strong points. It is a movie you watch and you have to put it down once you get to the end, because it is just too slow. It's a nice story, but it doesn't really make sense. It's not a movie you want to be watching a third time.

I had to watch this movie again after about 10 years. The story is really interesting. I had to see it again to get the whole story. The story is about a young man and a woman, who become friends. He is struggling with the love of a woman. And she is in love with a man. They are also in love with each other, but he is really in love with his father. The movie is very moving, and you feel really sad when the two main characters meet. This is a good movie for people who want to watch a story with good moral. I think this is a good movie to watch, and the story is really good. I think you can watch this movie and feel really sad. I give it a 7/10.

This movie was an interesting watch. It was slow and slow and slow. I kept waiting for something to happen. Nothing. There is some really good acting in it, though, and a very interesting plot. I thought it was an interesting look at the suffering of the aristocracy, though. It is definitely worth a watch.

this movie was good. i don't know how many people will like it. i will say it is not a bad movie. it is a great movie. however, it is a kind of a story about a student who decides to give up on a fraternity. he takes up the fraternity in a new school and he starts to change. he starts to make changes in his life and his wife. he learns a lot about his fraternity and his family. the movie is great. i recommend it to people who like good movies. if you liked the movie you will like the movie. i think people who are into horror movies would like the movie.

I have a feeling that this film is being hailed as one of the best films of the year. This is quite a strange opinion. First of all, I don't think this film is a masterpiece. It's a bit slow and there are a lot of scenes that don't make much sense. But then again, I don't think this is a perfect film. I think the story is really good and the acting is really good. I think it's a great film and it should get more credit than it is getting. I think this is a great film that should be viewed by people of all ages. I think it's a very good film that should be seen by everybody. I think this film deserves a lot more credit than it's getting.

An interesting movie about the rise and fall of a young man who is driven by a single-minded obsession. It's a very engaging story, and the performances by the three leads are exceptional. If you're a fan of the teacher, that's a big plus.

I am surprised at the low rating for this movie. It is a really good movie, not as good as you would expect, but worth watching. I am really disappointed that this movie didn't do better at the box office, the movie is a bit dated, but there are some nice parts to it. I think that this movie is worth seeing, even if you don't like a lot of chick flicks. It is worth it. If you like romance, this movie is worth it. There are some really nice scenes in this movie, and the romance is actually touching. I would recommend this movie to anyone. It is really worth it, and is a great movie to watch, but it is not a great movie. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone.

This movie has been so far under-appreciated by the viewers that I decided to watch it on my own for the first time since watching this movie last year. Although the movie is very good and worth watching for its ideas and its subtle meanings, it is so much more than that. This movie is like a puzzle with many threads which all have to be seen together. Some of the characters are presented in a very negative light and it is this negative portrayal of characters which makes the movie so special. This is what makes the movie so interesting. The theme of the movie is very interesting, but it is very easy to miss the big picture in the movie. So, if you don't watch the whole movie, you might miss the big picture. And if you do watch the whole movie, you may have to think a lot about the movie after watching it. This movie is a must-see for the people who like to think. But it is not a must-see for the people who like to watch a lot of movies.

I watched this film in the hope that it would be the same as "Frozen" and "Lion", the other two films that were released last year. I was wrong. The movie is very good, but it does not have the same magic that "Frozen" and "Lion" had. In this film, you can see that the main characters are on a completely different level of acting. Anna, Anna, Anna. She is very sweet and is the best person in the film. Her acting is the best in the film. Elsa, the princess, is extremely annoying. I like her. Anna, the Queen, is so good looking, but she has the worst voice I have ever heard. I like her, but she is not good enough. Kristoff is annoying, he is the one that tries to make Anna fall in love with him. He is so annoying and I think it is very obvious that he is not good at acting. Sven is the best character in the film. He is so funny and I really like him. The other characters are also very good. I really like the queen. She is good. Hans, the king, is really good. The ice trolls are also really good. The snowman is good. The other characters are all good. There are a lot of things that I liked in this film, but I think it is not as good as "Frozen" and "Lion". The story is better, but the acting is also good. It is very enjoyable and is one of the best films I have seen in the last years. I do not recommend this film, but it is not bad.

As a former Catholic I was somewhat skeptical about this movie, but I'm glad I watched it. I thought the actors did a wonderful job in portraying the turmoil of a young priest and the desire for knowledge. The ending is sad, but it is beautiful to see how the characters react to their dilemma. It shows the tension between the roles of a priest and a husband. It is a great movie to show family to family members.

I really enjoyed this film and thought it was very different from the usual Hollywood fare. It was a shame that the mainstream media and the rest of the Hollywood elite didn't make a bigger effort to release it on video. It is well worth seeing and I would recommend it to anyone.

I enjoyed this movie very much. I liked the story and the actors were good. The story was so real and believable. I thought the story was believable because it's based on real life experiences. It was like watching a documentary. I have never seen such a good movie about religion and the human spirit. I would recommend this movie to anyone who has any interest in religion. I recommend this movie to everyone because it's not just for believers. This movie shows that we are all people and that we are all going to hell. This movie was really interesting. I think everyone who has ever been in church would enjoy this movie.

The film is good for its purpose, but the story is very boring. There is no suspense, no tension, and no interesting characters. In fact, there is no character in the film at all. The only thing that I liked about the film was the cinematography, but it was very shallow. The only things that were good about this film were the photography, and the performances. The camera-work was very impressive, and the performances were very good. My rating for this film is 7/10.

I was so excited when I first heard of this film. I thought it was going to be another big-budget, Hollywood style flick about sex, drugs, and rock and roll, but I was wrong. This film is so different from the rest of the films that it makes the other films in the genre look like big-budget commercial films. It's a sad, yet beautiful story about two young men, a priest and a nurse, who are all doomed to be prostitutes. They meet at a local party and bond over their love of drugs and sex. The priest develops a taste for the prostitute, and the nurse starts to get in touch with her real feelings. The priest's plan to seduce the nurse was a bit like a Hollywood film. He seduced the nurse to make her forget the past, and he seduced the priest to forget the past. This is a film that leaves you with a big feeling of sadness and melancholy. It's so sad to see a story like this on screen, and the ending is so sad and so sad. This film is so beautiful and sad, and it really makes you feel sad and sad. This film is not for everyone. But for me it was the best film I've seen this year.
