A stunning new restoration of Jacques Rivette’s exquisite 1966 drama The Nun, one of the most breath-taking and emotional works of French cinema. In the 18th century, Suzanne Simonin is locked in a convent against her will. She finds for a while some comfort with the Mother Superior, but then she dies and is replaced by a sadistic woman who persecutes Suzanne. Suzanne becomes determined to fight for her freedom and the right to renounce her vows, but comes up against the full might of the Church.
