Pawlikowski returns to Poland for this story of a novitiate nun, on the verge of taking vows, who discovers a dark family secret dating back to the Nazi Occupation. “A masterpiece, I can’t recall a movie that makes such expressive use of silence and portraiture; from the beginning I was thrown into a state of awe by [its] fervent austerity” (David Denby).
