Critically acclaimed Australian mini-series, Brides of Christ, tells the story of Roman Catholic nuns and life at their boarding school during the 1960s.
Behind high convent walls, their lives are circumscribed by centuries old traditions, rites and disciplines. But in times of radical change and upheaval, the Brides of Christ are forced to reconcile the conflict between the ancient ways and the new.
They are bound by vows which set them apart, yet they must become part of a changing world. In their care are spirited teenagers, schooled in the old creed, yet eager to taste the new freedoms.
The series stars some of Australia's hottest actors including Josephine Byrnes, Lisa Hensley, Naomi Watts, Kym Wilson and Russell Crowe.
