Writer-director Margaret Betts chronicles the journey of an American  teen as she follows her passion to become a nun in the 1960’s. Raised in rural Tennessee in a non-religious home, she enters the church at a time of radical change. Margaret Qualley, Melissa Leo and Dianna Agron co-star ®

"Novitiate doesn't tell a straightforward story of love and sacrifice, of faith and its crises. [Margaret] Betts's film is ritualistic and enthralling, with a complex feminism woven into its cloth, and it's something of a blessing." Julia Cooper, Globe and Mail

"It's thought-provoking, occasionally melodramatic fare that should definitely garner some award nominations for Leo, who could put the fear of God into anybody." Sara Stewart, New York Post
