Spanning over a decade from the early 1950s through to the mid-60s and starring Academy Award nominated actress Melissa Leo, Novitiate is about a young girl's first initiation with God. Raised by a non-religious, single mother in rural Tennessee, a scholarship to Catholic school soon finds Cathleen drawn into the mystery of a life devoted to the servitude of God. With the dawn of a new era, radical changes in the Church are threatening the course of nuns' lives. As she progresses to the novitiate stage of training, she finds herself struggling with issues offaith, sexuality, and recent changes to the Church. 

“A piercing, immersive, and superbly played convent drama in which the suppression of speech is witnessed at both an individual and institutional level.” ~~~Variety
