Worth your 90 minutes, easy.

Great movie! A young nun (Addison Timlin) comes home after years of avoiding contact and tries to reconnect with her family. The simple plot is justified by the most relatable thing for any human which is how to spend your life.

I am an atheist, but grew up a Christian and will always love the great morals an values that come with the religion. I often wish I could believe in god and feel part of a powerful community that's out there to do good, but I've spend too much time hating on the dark cynical stuff of organized religions. I have come to see most of them as great money scheme's.

This movie called Little Sister made me totally forget about the cynical stuff for a while. It's just simply being part of something good that makes you motivated to do good and ultimately make you feel good about yourself. This movie tackles this feeling in different ways than just religion. I had a sense that the movie put the same feeling on a lot of things in life like going in the army, being a parent or even joining a terrorist group that fights for a cause you believe in. I am just speculating but that's how it translated to me.

There you go, a simple movie about a young nun coming home for the first time in years and it still gave me all the good and bad feelings where it needed to and even gave me some stuff to think about. All the actors are very entertaining and believable, but the lead actress Addison Timlin who plays the nun totally steals the show. A beautiful actress that can tell a story with her face. I loved it.

I definitely recommend this movie. Even if this is normally not your cup of tea, I would still give it a try. It's just 90 minutes and flows by even faster by great editing. You might be pleasantly surprised.

Final Rating: (8/10)
