1760s France. Suzanne is shocked when her bourgeois family sends her to a convent. There she faces oppression and torment, leading her to fight back and expose the dehumanizing effect of cloistered life.
My first thought upon viewing this film was, "Well, there's 88 minutes of my life I'll never get back." Let my loss be your gain. Rather than watch this film go clean out that junk closet or have that elective surgery you've been putting off. Frankly, this film has no redeeming qualities. The set looks like its right out of the 70's (I think I saw an 8-track player in the stereo), the plot is pathetic, the acting is terrible and the sex scenes are uninspiring and poorly acted. I bet even the actors don't mention that they were in this film. I guess it was either that or spend the day waiting tables. This movie is so bad that even the credits are wrong. The main characters last names are not "James" as credited, but "Jennings." Unless you're a masochist, watch anything else.
