In early-20th-century Michigan, circumstances brought Father Brian Rivard (Dick Van Dyke)-who'd been sent to a rural backwater for his progressive leanings-to share his rectory with the young and spirited nun Sister Rita (Kathleen Quinlan). The outrage that simmered amongst the locals became a full-boil scandal with Sister Rita's abrupt disappearance. Controversial, fact-inspired effort, the final film from Stanley Kramer, co-stars Maureen Stapleton, Beau Bridges, Ray Bolger, Tammy Grimes. 109 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English; Subtitles: English; audio commentary; theatrical trailers.
