Description
"A Movie Masterpiece" - Life

The Nun's Story is an unforgettable revelation of the seldom-seen world behind convent walls. A radiant Audrey Hepburn portrays a nun whose life journey takes her from the staff of a mental asylum to a much-desired position as a surgical nurse in the Belgian Congo. But when she returns to her native Belgium as World War II breaks out, she is torn between the needs of the Resistance and the church's neutrality.

Directed by four-time Academy Award®-winner Fred Zinnemann, The Nun's Story earned eight Oscar® nominations including Best Picture, New York Film Critics Awards for Best Actress and Director and National Board of Review Awards for Best Picture, Director and Supporting Actress (Edith Evans).

      Comments about this product:

      This is a 1958 drama. This convent is harsh, never allows one person's talent or ability to be used above another's. Never serve where you are best qualified, send the least to test them.

      Audrey Hepburn, joins the convent. Her father's lasts words are "There is no shame in 'failure'." He should have said, "Reversal of choice, no shame." Played by Dean Jagger.

      Audrey goes through the vigor's of training. It is always silence! She is determined. No punishment will kill her spirit and allow surrender.

      After long trials, she wins her assignment as nurse in the Congo. She meets Peter Finch, an amazing doctor in surgery. He even treats her for tuberculosis in a climate which is a death sentence, he likes this nursing nun above all others because she is talented and has a spark of hidden rebellion.

      Finally, she is cursed to return to Belgium. She can no longer find peace. She pleads for release of her vows after her father and brother were killed in the WWII by Germans. Plus, a novice is working both sides, the convent and the Resistance, she allows the novice in dual choice.

      I highly recommend this movie to teach youngsters in morality.

      May I make one comment, Priests never undergo this punishment of self, they are political and find ways to avoid sexual prescribed contact, now with young boys as today's news. They are the Fathers over nuns, still overlords. They are never chastised severely!
      It was 'oh, oh", give him a reassignment to more boys.

              Audrey is always wonderful, but this movie is a bit depressing. However it's realistic and well done. Hepburn never made a bad movie and always gave a good performance. A must if you love AH.

                This is my favorite Audrey Hepburn movie! It would be a great movie to show young people the importance of ministering to others, responsibility, how to be discerning and self-sacrificing. These are lessons that today's films are not teaching. It would also be a great family night movie for parents to open dialogue with their children. I highly recommend this Hepburn movie!
