Writer-director Jan Dunn has previously specialized in outsiders and their relation to a community – the eponymous Gypo and loner Bob Hoskins in Ruby Blue. Here she takes a further step on that road by following a novitiate (newcomer Emily Beecham) into a nunnery. The young woman's vocation is seriously tested by an eccentric set of senior nuns, played by a stellar cast including Brenda Blethyn, Susannah York, Amanda Donohoe and Rita Tushingham.
Thanks to the Director
The Calling maintains a good sense of humour while addressing difficult and controversial issues; it’s well worth a look.
