SCREENING

Benedetta

Sunday, Jan 2 at 3:00 PM

Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Paul Verhoeven. France/Netherlands. 2021, 131 mins. DCP. In French with English subtitles. With Virginie Efira, Lambert Wilson, Daphne Patakia, Olivier Rabourdin, Clotilde Courau, Charlotte Rampling. A 17th-century nun becomes entangled in a forbidden lesbian affair with a novice, but it is Benedetta’s shocking religious visions that threaten to shake the Church to its core. In his controversy-courting latest, based on a true story, Verhoeven gleefully puts the hypocrisy of both Church and state under a microscope, while also weaving a wildly entertaining, fluidly told tale of manipulation, blasphemy, and eroticism. In the title role, the magnificent Efira is a wily shape-shifter, moving from angel to demon and back again, and Rampling is outstanding as a conflicted Mother Superior. An IFC Films release.
