Boy, what a surprise this was. Who would have thought that a PBS Masterpiece production with one of the most celebrated of international leading ladies could be such a STINKER. Hackneyed and tedious almost from the get-go, and I stayed with it well past the get-go (in fact, 2 whole hours before I decided to get-going). I mean, one should have been prepared, I suppose, for something wonky when one is asked to accept Kristin Scott Thomas as a contemporary cloistered nun. Was it the (merely hinted it) Lesbian angle in the convent? Was it Thomas's anguished reaction when she stumbles upon a couple bonking in a shed? Was it the prune-faced nun who assaults her upon her return to the convent with the words "God doesn't want you here"? Was it the hunky young factory foreman with whom she allies herself when she decides to save the family textile mill? Now don't misunderstand, it's not that I actually want these questions answered…I was just wondering which WAS it that finally made me give up on this piece of overcooked tripe.
