Reviews:
3 stars out of 4 -- "Veteran French director Anne Fontaine approaches a spiritually and emotionally complex real-life slice of history with deftness and understated drama in THE INNOCENTS." - 07/01/2016 RogerEbert.com


"The most complicated and compelling character is the severe Mother Abbess....Ms. Kulesza’s anguished performance conveys the weight of an almost unbearable choice..." - 06/30/2016 New York Times


"Strikingly acted by all concerned, impeccably put together by Fontaine without any false steps, THE INNOCENTS is also wonderfully lit, with frequent convent scenes invariably reminiscent of Italian Renaissance paintings." - 06/30/2016 Los Angeles Times


"THE INNOCENTS is remarkable to look at throughout....The lighting and visuals recall Vermeer at times, but the film’s sensibility and sympathies are more in tune with the women in his paintings." - 07/14/2016 Boston Globe


4 stars out of 5 -- "[C]inematographer Caroline Champetier makes evocative use of the frosty landscape and Joanna Macha's austere interiors, while nun Maria and her peers respond to their plight and its attendant crises of faith with a humour and humility that is deeply affecting..." - 11/08/2016 Empire
