Barbara was worth the Little effort
15 January 2019 | by jadzia92See all my reviews

Released in 2016, I saw this movie because it had Barbara Crampton in it. I first saw her in The Bold and the Beautiful but it was shortly afterwards when I saw her in Fraternity Vacation that I really fell in love with her due to a certain scene she did there. In Little Sister she has fleeting appearances as The Reverend Mother. To be honest if Barbara had been a real nun I would risk God's wrath just to be with her. Little Sister is about a young nun Colleen (Addison Timlin) who goes home to visit her family and this is set on the backdrop of the 2008 US presidential election and the war in Iraq. Overall Little Sister I found bland in a lot of places but does make an effort in showing Colleen on her reflection in the life that she has chosen to take.
