The Innocents (Les innocentes) (2016)

Director: Anne Fontaine. Cast: Lou de Laâge, Agata Buzek, Agata Kulesza. 115 min. Rated PG-13. France/Poland. Drama/Historical.

If there's a story about a few nuns in a faraway land (Magdalene Sisters, Philomena), it's usually dark and depressing (Americans get Sister Act). I'd rather not disclose anything about this one, other than this too is of the former kind, and that something indescribable happens to nuns in a Polish convent at the end of the War. Otherwise, if you want the shock I received, go in watching this fresh. While the film would've benefited from a shorter duration, it proves that solely being a woman (and not necessarily a nun) at times of war, is considered a hazard.
