    This is now titled Bendetta it seems.

    "A film by Paul Verhoeven, with Virginie Efira, Charlotte Rampling, Daphné Patakia and Lambert Wilson

    In French cinemas on July 9th 2021

    In the late 15th century, with plague ravaging the land, Benedetta Carlini joins the convent in Pescia, Tuscany, as a novice. Capable from an early age of performing miracles, Benedetta’s impact on life in the community is immediate and momentous."

    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    This'll probably get a UK release some time after the it has its UK premiere at the London Film Festival in October. I'm looking forward to this.

    "Some critics have also spotted shades of Hammer Horror, while others have made comparisons to British Carry On comedies ."

    How can I resist that combination?
    I'm bitter, I'm twisted, James Joyce is fucking my sister.
