Lambert Wilson will lead the male part of the cast
To be directed by famous Paul Verhoeven, it will see gorgeousVirginie Efiraplaying Benedetta Carlini, a novice nun capable of performing miracles, who joins an Italian convent in the late 17th century, as plague is ravaging the land.  While at the convent she begins a love affair with another woman. Steamy and scandalous and delightfully sinful :) The story is, apparently, based on historical facts about the abbess Carlini.
