Known for erotic sensations like Basic Instinct and Showgirls, director Paul Verhoeven is back with his steamy period melodrama that shook up Cannes and divided the critics. 

In the late 17th century, with plague ravaging the land, Benedetta Carlini joins a Tuscan convent as a novice. Capable from an early age of performing miracles, she suffers from disturbing religious and erotic visions. When she begins a passionate affair with a newcomer to the convent, Benedetta develops stigmata and the church powers that be must decide if she’s faking it – and whether that even matters.   

Benedetta mixes the serious and provocative with humour and self-aware outrageousness. It has all of Verhoeven’s trademark violence and shock factor sex scenes, but it’s also a sensuous, sophisticated and highly entertaining film exploring issues of power, dominance and faith.
