Summary, etc.:
This audience favorite is set in 1960s Quebec, where encroaching secular culture threatens a convent and boarding school that produces award-winning musicians. Mother Augustine (C©♭line Bonnier) puts all her energy into her students, no matter their socio-economic background. But the future of the convent is put in jeopardy when a public education system is introduced.. Complicating matters, her niece Alice (Lysandre M©♭nard) arrives and flaunts her individuality as an exotic teen and talented jazz pianist. Augustine is determined to tame Alice's wild spirit, while she also clashes with the Mother General (Marie Tifo), who is no fan of music. PASSION OF AUGUSTINE is a surprisingly tender film about the power of music, sisterhood, and strength of women organizing to fight for what they believe in.. Winner of 5 Jutra Awards, including Best Film and Best Actress. Winner of an Audience Award in the World Cinema Independent category at the Mill Valley Film Festival.. "... A good dose of inspirational uplift without ever seeming to reach for it in the obvious, expected ways." - Dennis Harvey, Variety
