The Nun’s Story
Based on Kathryn C. Hulme's best selling novel, The Nun's Story is an unforgettable revelation of the seldom-seen world behind convent walls. Audrey Hepburn portrays Sister Luke, a nun whose life journey leads her to a much desired position as a surgical nurse in a Belgian Congo missionary hospital but who is tortured by self-doubt. After she returns to her native Belgium, World War II breaks out and she finds her commitment seriously tested; torn between the pull 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, Best Director and Best Actress.
