The Nun's Story Movie Review Summary

Actors: Audrey Hepburn

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Nun's Story

Audrey Heburn plays a woman who's dream is to become a nun and help sick people. She has a very hard time dealing with the rules that come with being a nun. She has to make a decision to be made should she stay on as a nun or throw away the life of hard rules and become a nurse. This movie is a litle long, a little boring, but as always Audrey hepburn does a wonderful job. This movie is also one of Colleen Dewhurst's first roles. She plays a bit part as a mentally ill person that Audrey Hepburn treats. Based on Kathryn Hulme's book.
