Description

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).
