Film Screening at Guild Hall 

Hamptons International Film Festival and Guild Hall presents “NOW SHOWING: NOVITIATE” on Saturday, February 10, 2018 at 6 p.m.

NOVITIATE” (USA, 2017, 118 minutes) is directed by Maggie Betts. Drawn in by the prospect of a higher calling despite her non-religious upbringing, Cathleen (Margaret Qualley), a teenager growing up in the early 1960s,  finds herself among a group of young women who have devoted themselves to a training program within The Sisters of Blessed Rose convent. While their devotion is contrasted against the harsh realities of religious life, the sudden announcement of Pope John XXIII’s Second Vatican Council provides a new question for both the students and their Mother Superior (Academy Award® winner Melissa Leo).

Tickets are $15 and $12 for Guild Hall and HIFF Members. Guild Hall is located at 158 Main St, East Hampton, NY 11937. www.guildhall.org. www.hamptonsfilmfest.org.
