Are you down for some lesbian nuns? If so, we have a movie (that’s not porn!) for you to watch.
The full trailer for Paul Verhoeven’s erotic lesbian nun drama ‘Benedetta’ has arrived. IFC Films has released the first full trailer for the film, which made its world premiere at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival. So far, it’s received mostly positive reviews from critics.
The official synopsis reads:
A 17th-century nun in Italy suffers from disturbing religious and erotic visions. She is assisted by a companion, and the relationship between the two women develops into a romantic love affair. Based on Judith C. Brown’s ‘Immodest Acts: The Life of a Lesbian Nun in Renaissance Italy.’
It’s Verhoeven’s first directorial affair since the 2016 release of Elle. The film received praise from critics and took home several awards.
Benedetta stars Virginie Efira, Charlotte Rampling, Lambert Wilson and Daphne Patakia. It’s set to hit select theaters and video on demand on December 3, 2021.
