Benedetta

Opens Dec 3, 2021

"A vintage Verhoeven brew of violence, sex, and religious hypocrisy"

– Hollywood Reporter



A 17th-century nun, Benedetta becomes entangled in a forbidden romance within the convent — but it is her ecstatic visions that threaten everything. 
Legendary director Paul Verhoeven (Basic Instinct, Robocop) brings to life Judith C. Brown's true account Immodest Acts: The Life of a Lesbian Nun in Renaissance Italy.
