An isolated convent becomes the setting for murder in this suspenseful tale of spiritual passion and pride. Jane Fonda, Ann Bancroft and Meg Tilly star in Norman Jewison's riveting adaptation of the hit Broadway drama. When the infant of a young nun, Agnes (Tilly), is found strangled, a court-appointed psychiatrist, Martha Livingston (Fonda), must decide if the devout but troubled girl is fit to stand trial. In her quest for truth, Martha goes head to head with the intractable Mother Superior (Bancroft), who assures her that Agnes has no memory of the pregnancy. But the probe uncovers mysterious aspects of Agnes' personality, which lead to a shattering climax. Is AGNES OF GOD a hystericalyoung woman or is her ordeal divinely inspired?
movie ended on a terrible note, did not have slightest idea what was going on. Did not make sensePublished 17 days ago by Jack Mazur
One of the most powerful movies I have ever seen. Meg Tilly's performance here is spectacular; I truly believe she is one of Hollywood's most under-rated actresses. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Tracy Garrett
So well acted. Can't beat those veterans, Fonda and Bancroft. Meg Tily was wonderful too.Published 4 months ago by JANET M. MURRAY
Good story, reasonably well scripted. Anne Bancroft's performance carries the picture. Fonda's performance is poor.Published 5 months ago by Rich from Atlanta
