Lambs of God


(Fox Show­case) Se­questered in soli­tude from the rest of the world on a re­mote and rugged is­land, the lives of three nuns, Sis­ter Mar­garita ( ANN DOWD), Sis­ter Iphi­ge­nia ( ESSIE DAVIS) and Sis­ter Carla ( JES­SICA BARDEN) are at first as peace­ful and re­moved as they’ve planned. How­ever, their ex­is­tence turns into a har­row­ing gothic night­mare with the ar­rival of Fa­ther Ig­natius ( SAM REID), a hand­some and am­bi­tious young priest who ac­ci­den­tally stum­bles onto them while on church busi­ness. His at­tempts to sell their di­lap­i­dated monastery out from un­der them pro­vokes the three Sis­ters of St Agnes to de­fend their lives, ex­is­tence and be­liefs in this twisted, macabre and cap­ti­vat­ing adap­ta­tion of MARELE DAY’s Aus­tralian novel.
