"A small gem, tender and bleak, funny and sad, superbly photographed in luminous monochrome".

Peter Bradshaw, Film Critic, The Guardian

Winner of Best Film Award at the London Film Festival last month, acclaimed director Pawel Pawlikowski’s critically acclaimed cinematic masterpiece will have its Australian Premiere at JIFF this month. The director of Last Resort and My Summer of Love returns to his homeland for this moving and intimate drama about a young novitiate nun in 1960s Poland who, on the verge of taking her vows, discovers a dark family secret dating from the terrible years of the Nazi occupation.
