The New Boy

Blanchett in imperious zealot mode is hard to resist ” Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Set in 1940s Australia, the film depicts the mesmeric story of a 9-year-old Aboriginal orphan boy who arrives in the dead of night at a remote monastery run by a renegade nun (Blanchett). The new boy’s presence disturbs the delicately balanced world in this story of spiritual struggle and the cost of survival.
