THE INNOCENTS

FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
From outstanding director Anne Fontaine ('Gemma Bovery', 'Coco Before Chanel'), 'The Innocents' is based on a remarkable true story about the crises of faith that emerge when a house of God is ravaged by war. Mathilde is a young French doctor with the Red Cross on a mission to treat Second World War survivors in Poland in late 1945. When a nun appears at the clinic one night seeking her help, she is brought to a convent where 30 Benedictine nuns live cut off from the world. She discovers that several are due to give birth, having been assaulted by Soviet soldiers. Unable to reconcile their faith with their pregnancy, the nuns turn to Mathilde, who becomes their only hope. ★★★★ "A striking, sober film" - Wendy Ide, The Guardian
