A herb garden was tended by one of the nuns; it had roses around the periphery and an old stone bench. The first time I saw a young nun with a smooth apricot face and downcast eyes heading towards the herb garden, I moved back automatically until I realized I was invisible to her.   And Unfinished Desires is a really good book about nuns.) Perhaps unsurprisingly, Unfinished Desires reminded me of another great book about nuns.

  While people may call nuns “sister”, sisters and nuns in a convent or an abbey are two completely different roles. Being a nun for instance means that you are cloistered, separated from society, and live your whole life on the grounds of an abbey (except for when you need to go to the hospital of course!). Directed by Fred Zinnemann. With Audrey Hepburn, Peter Finch, Edith Evans, Peggy Ashcroft. After leaving a wealthy Belgian family to become a nun, Sister Luke struggles with her devotion to her vows during crisis, disappointment, and World War II.

the nuns persuade Fauchelevent to fill and empty coffin with dirt and deliver it to the cemetery in place of the dead nuns body but instead, he places Valjean in it and he manages to get out of the garden. The Nun boasts a strong cast -- led by Oscar nominee Bichir and Farmiga (the younger sister of Vera Farmiga, who played Lorraine Warren in the two Conjuring movies). Early images of dimly lit rooms in the Vatican and the first glimpses of the haunted abbey bring to mind atmospheric chillers like The Exorcist or The Orphanage.
