IFC Films released the official trailer for Benedetta, the drama directed by Paul Verhoeven based on the true story of Benedetta Carlini, a 17th-century nun in Tuscany who believed she saw visions of Christ and engaged in a lesbian affair with a fellow sister.

The film premiered at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival and opens in select theaters on December 3 and on VOD December 21, 2021.

Virginie Efira (SIBYL) stars as Benedetta, along with Charlotte Rampling, Lambert Wilson and Daphne Patakia co-stars as Bartolomea, the object of Benedetta’s desire.

Based on a true story, a 17th-century nun becomes entangled in a forbidden lesbian affair with a novice. But it is Benedetta’s shocking religious visions that threaten to shake the Church to its core.
