Trivia

Sister Mildred says the line "I'm a midwife, not a conjurer!". That is a nod to the actor's previous role as a witch, Professor Sprout, in the Harry Potter movies. See more »

Quotes

Sister Hilda: The presence of a guest might persuade our sisters to *moderate their quarrel*.
Sister Mildred: The quarrel is not between ourselves, it is *within* us. The quarrel is between one's own desires and that which is demanded. The quarrel is between the body and its longings, the soul and its terrors, and the mind - yearning to be free. The quarrel defines us. It drives us forwards, upwards, to our knees in prayer. You must embrace the quarrel. The quarrel will lead us to the answer. It is everything we are.
