Benedetta

15 yrs 126 minutes 2021 6.8

Benedetta tells the true story of how lesbian nuns were punished for their sins by the patriarchal Catholic Church in 17th century Italy. The nun novel Benedetta begins to see visions of Jesus, which both frightens and fascinates the other nuns and Benedetta is elevated to abedissa. A newfound friendship with a young woman makes Benedetta live out her desires for sexual gratification, something that is not taken lightly and the path to disaster is a fact.
