Critic Reviews for Novitiate
Novitiate doesn't tell a straightforward story of love and sacrifice, of faith and its crises. [Margaret] Betts's film is ritualistic and enthralling, with a complex feminism woven into its cloth, and it's something of a blessing.
Strikingly ambitious, even when it can be as formal as a church service.
There's a lot of great filmmaking in Novitiate, but there's also quite a bit still missing.
Mesmerizes as it probes a uniquely female-dominated milieu where passions - both religious, sexual and a combination of the two - run hot under those starched, lily-white coifs and black habits.
