Rating:
PG-13
Agnes of God is a 1985 drama about a psychiatrist and a nun clashing over the fate of a young, troubled woman. Sister Agnes (Meg Tilly), a young Catholic novice, stands accused of murdering her own newborn baby. Agnes believes she experienced a virginal birth and has no recollection of the murder. The courts need to determine if the fragile Agnes can be considered legally sane and sends psychologist Martha Livingston (Jane Fonda) to investigate the case. Martha first meets with Mother Miriam Ruth (Anne Bancroft), who leads the convent where Agnes resides. She recounts the life story of this unusually devout, but na''ve, young woman, who the nun believes she would be best left to God's work. The doctor, an atheist, believes that Agnes needs mental health care. As the two strong-willed women argue over the case, the details reveal how the innocent nun became pregnant. Norman Jewison ("Moonstruck") directs this screen adaptation of John Pielmeier's Broadway play.
