Overview

Based on the Marquis de Sade's infamous novel of the same name, this new dramatic version of JUSTINE closely follows the original story, both in spirit and in action. De Sade, with his relentless logic, attempts to prove that "virtue" as practiced by most people actually contradicts nature. The innocent maiden Justine suffers one humiliation and setback after another in her futile quest to preserve her virtue and her virginity. No one--not the nobility, not the Church, not even her sister--will step forward to help her unceasing cries for help. Finally, even the Almighty Himself turns against her, fed up with her incessant whining.
