Worth seeing for Glenda Jackson alone!
2 March 1999 | by (New Orleans, LA) – See all my reviews

I'm sorry this film didn't get more widespread attention. I believe I found only one real review, and in that Leonard Matlin called this a bomb.

Had Mr. Maltin been raised in Catholic school he might think differently. What he calls outrageous and ludicrous, I called high school. As the Mother Superior of a convent, Glenda Jackson wields power in its most vicious and devastating forms. And as she as she destroys the people in her care, she herself becomes her own victim, also. Get it! Demand it! See it!
