Directed by Paul Verhoeven

Set in the late 17th century and inspired by true events, Benedetta follows a young woman who joins a convent in Pescia, Tuscany as a plague ravages the land that surrounds it. Capable of performing miracles from an early age, Benedetta’s impact on life in the community is immediate and momentous. Verhoeven’s latest provocation couldn’t be accused of subtlety, but with its evocation of The Devils and Black Narcissus it is certain to delight and divide.
