"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).

                I have seen this movie several times and just had to own my own copy so I can watch it when I want to watch it. Love the story line, love the characters.

                  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.

                    Comments about this product:

                    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!
