Based on a true story, a 17th-century nun (Virginie Efira, Elle) becomes entangled in a forbidden lesbian affair with a novice, but it is Benedetta’s shocking religious visions that threaten to shake the Church to its core. Directed by Paul Verhoeven (RoboCop, Elle, Basic Instinct), Benedetta “is a substantial, sophisticated, yet briskly paced and always highly entertaining drama, which balances quiet scenes of shrewd backroom politicking with lurid scenes of wild religious madness (Nicholas Barber, BBC).”

Tickets: $10 (members), $15 (nonmembers)

"A grand summation of all the director's ideas about eroticism, rationality, moral ambiguity, and faith"
