Standout, signature scenes make for moments of great viewing power but can’t hide the flaws of an untidy, overlong story.

A study in mood and emotion, about using the canvas of film to convey to the audience the inner feelings of the characters.

Although the surface tone is breezy and cheeky, there’s a lot going on beneath the facade.

Almost seems too bizarre to be true, even though it is - an inadvertent success story that illustrates there’s more than one way to stardom.

A thoughtful meditation about war and surviving in its aftermath.

Highlighted by an awards-worthy performance by Saoirse Ronan and structured around a light, witty script, the movie delivers a coming-of-age snapshot.

Perhaps the most remarkable thing about "Novitiate" is the even-handedness with which it treats religion in general and 1960s Catholicism in particular.
