A NSFW Verhoeven Horny Nun Movie Is Something to Celebrate

Paul Verhoeven is back, and he's got a horny nun this time. 

I went to Catholic school, so I wonder if I am going to hell for posting this article. But I am going to keep typing because I love Paul Verhoeven movies so much, and because this one looks as insane as his other masterworks. 

The film is called Benedetta, and is based on the novel Immodest Acts – The Life of A Lesbian Nun In Renaissance Italy, which was inspired by a true story. The film follows Benedetta Carlini, a young nun who people suspect has divine abilities. She begins an affair with another nun, who might actually be nefarious. 

The whole story takes place in the 15th century, at a time when a plague ravages the land. 

The movie stars Charlotte Rampling, Virginie Efira, and Daphné Patakia. Check out the racy and very NSFW trailer below. 

The film premieres at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, followed by a July 9 theatrical release in France. The U.S. release date has yet to be announced, but if the movie gets a lot of buzz, I imagine quite a few distributors will want to have something to put in theaters or on streaming.

“When we were shooting the film, there lived still no [coronavirus] to be seen. It’s about the outbreak of the plague in a town in Italy and so happens to be very prophetic,” Verhoeven said in an interview with NPO Radio 1

Having been raised in a catholic family I'm afraid to watch this as I would very likely end up in hell. But then, I'm on a highway to hell anyways.

Why trash? Great director, good actors, nice cinematography and editing. There is a lot of quality stuff in this.
