From the director of Palme d'Or-winning '4 Months, 3 Weeks & 2 Days' comes a true story of a tragedy that unfolded in a small religious community in Romania. Two friends who grew up together in an orphanage are reunited after years apart. One has taken orders within a strict religious community, while the other wants them both to return to city life in Germany. While staying together in Voichita’s remote and austere convent, their relationship and sexuality begin to challenge the norms of the tight-knit community, resulting in a terrifying act that sends a shockwave through the church. This powerful drama film from Cristian Mungiu, inspired by a true story, was awarded both the Best Actress and Best Screenplay awards at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. ★★★★★ "Mungiu directs each scene as if it is a film in its own right" - Nigel Andrews, Financial Times ★★★★ "Soul-scorching drama about the monsters of our past that skulk just over the horizon" - Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
