Oscar winner Melissa Leo gives a tour de force performance in NOVITIATE, a film about a young woman training to become a nun during a radical societal transition in the 1960s. 


Spanning over a decade from the early 1950s through to the mid-60s, NOVITIATE is about a young girl’s first initiation with love, in this case with God. Raised by a non-religious, single mother in rural Tennessee, a scholarship to Catholic school soon finds Cathleen drawn into the mystery and romanticism of a life devoted to the worship and servitude of God. With the dawn of the Vatican II era, radical changes in the Church are threatening the course of nuns’ lives. As she progresses from the postulant to the novitiate stage of training, she finds her faith repeatedly confronted and challenged by the harsh, often inhumane realities of being a servant of God. Cathleen finds herself struggling with issues of faith, sexuality, and recent changes in life of the Church.


Critic Quotes:

In Leo, it presents a remarkable portrait of a complex woman struggling with forces beyond her control.” – Seattle Times

“Betts has succeeded in capturing a watershed moment in the life of the Catholic Church – a push to adapt that is, in important ways, at odds with its very origins.” – New York Magazine

“Ms. Betts refrains from easy, uplifting answers and facile condemnations of organized religion.” – New York Times
