Critic Reviews for Novitiate
All Critics (48) | Top Critics (21) | Fresh (44) | Rotten (4)
You can call Novitiate divinely inspired and mean it.
A stirring, soulful convent drama from first-time director Maggie Betts features Melissa Leo in an Oscar-worthy performance as Mother Superior. The film is a potent provocation shot through with grit and grace.
Novitiate is an intriguing if somewhat opaque movie, a feverish testament to the long reach and hard limits of faith.
Betts has succeeded in capturing a watershed moment in the life of the Catholic Church – a push to adapt that is, in important ways, at odds with its very origins.
It’s a faith-based film that’s about the actual search for faith – and about how often that journey leads us where it will, rather than where we want to go.
Novitiate finds room for all these viewpoints; appreciating the dedication it takes to live such a life while also questioning its suppression of individuality, emotion. This willingness to embrace such complexity is a bit of a miracle in itself.
