We’ve had quite a few lesbiefriendly projects announced this week, and here’s another one and it is period set too! ‘Deadline’ reports that Charlotte Rampling and Lambert Wilson have joined young actresses Virginie Efira and Daphne Patakiain 17th century erotic thriller BLESSED VIRGIN. 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.
Release date appears to be in France in 2019
Virginie Efira and Charlotte Rampling will star in Blessed Virgin
