You may watch below the first official trailer of Novitiate, the upcoming drama movie written and directed by Margaret Betts and starring Margaret Qualley (yep the girl from the TV Series The Leftovers), Julianne Nicholson, Dianna Agron, Morgan Saylor, and Melissa Leo:
“Spanning over a decade from the early 1950s through to the mid-60s, NOVITIATE is about a young girl’s first experience with love. In this case, her first love is God. Raised by a vehemently non-religious, single mother in rural Tennessee, a scholarship to Catholic school soon finds Cathleen drawn into all 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 threating the course of nuns’ lives. Cathleen finds herself struggling with issues of faith, sexuality, and the changing administration. 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.”
I know it’s not but I like to think of this film as a prequel to the Leftovers, lol.
The release date of the movie Novitiate is set to October 27, 2017.
Stay tuned for updates.
