Agnes of God 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Agnes of God was a Hollywood production headlined by some well-known actresses, yet few people know of the film today. That is a shame, for it is remarkable in how somber and depressing it can be and offers some fine performances by Anne Bancroft and Meg Tilly. In addition, it has one of the best musical scores in the last 20 years. The film's plot is more intricate than it seems. A young and naive nun named Sister Agnes (Meg Tilly) gives birth to a newborn baby in a convent, which is mysteriously found dead in her room. An investigation ensues, and Sister Agnes becomes the target of a debate of whether miracles still exist in our society or whether she is simply a victim of psychological unstability. Meg Tilly is brilliant, and Anne Bancroft is terrific. Jane Fonda, usually reliable, is uncharacteristically lackluster in her performance and actually hurts the film. Chemistry is very important between characters, and because Fonda is central to the story, she is in most scenes. Norman Jewison does a good job of directing, yet it is the final scene of the film that is the most powerful. Along with the swooning violins and angelic choir blazing in the background, the final image depicts in one moment how vulnerable we all are as humans, no matter how tough we think we are. In other words, even the strongest man watching this film will be moved and forced to think about how we live as a whole. It may seem I am exaggerating, but see the movie, listen closely to the incredible script, and you be the judge.
