The Innocents

This was one I had ticked off to see at the 2016 film festival, but life intervened and I had to skip it.  Todays weather forecast was predicting rain, so a bestie and me met for some curly fries and a drink and a seat at the cinema.

This movie is based on a real story.  It tells of a young French red Cross worker who is asked to assist with a difficult labor of a young woman at a Polish Convent.  While there she uncovers a secret that the nuns have been trying to keep quiet from the locals.

I did enjoy most of the story, although we had been warned it was somewhat grim.  It was a bit bleak and I did nod off a bit half way through.   3/5 nods from me.

It's interesting that you wrote that the movie was 'bleak'. The first thing I associated the word with was the poster in your illustration. I wonder if it was intended that way.
