Agnes of God

24 May

Agnes of God is a 1985 American mystery drama film directed by Norman Jewison, written by John Pielmeier based on his play of the same name, and starring Jane Fonda, Anne Bancroft and Meg Tilly, about a novice nun who gives birth and insists that the dead child was the result of a virgin conception. A psychiatrist (Fonda) and the mother superior (Bancroft) of the convent clash during the resulting investigation.

Despite generally mixed reviews from critics, the film was nominated for Academy Awards for Best Actress in a Leading Role (Bancroft), Best Actress in a Supporting Role (Tilly), and Best Music, Original Score. Tilly also won the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress.
