Movie Info

Adapted by James Costigan from the best-selling novel by Rumer Godden, In This House of Brede stars Diana Rigg as a widowed, fortyish business executive in search of a more meaningful life. She turns her back on the world of commerce and capitalism to enter a strict order of Benedictine nuns at Brede Abbey. Here, the peace of mind that Rigg seeks remains elusive, especially when her fidelity to her vows is questioned by the younger novices. Filmed on location at genuine convents in London and Ireland, In This House of Brede premiered February 27, 1975, as a GE TheaterTV special.

This fine drama is about the long hard task of dimming the ego and learning to love even those who irritate us.
