In 1940s Australia, the religiously feverish Sister Eileen (Cate Blanchett) presides over Indigenous boys deliberately orphaned by the authorities. The arrival of a ‘new boy’ unsettles the monastery, but enlivens Sister Eileen’s fervour for Christ to be his guide. Aswan Reid is magnetic as the new boy, in a performance that rivals his acclaimed co-stars and heralds a new screen talent.
