See all four episodes of Jeffrey Walker’s (Ali’s Wedding, SFF 2017) dark, gothic and twistedly-erotic Foxtel mini-series, about a secluded nunnery threatened by the arrival of a handsome young priest.

Forgotten by the rest of the world, the nuns live a humble life inside a dilapidated monastery: working, praying and telling each other dark fairy tales. One day, Father Ignatius (Sam Reid, The Railway Man, Standing Up for Sunny, playing at SFF 2019), stumbles upon them. The three sisters of St Agnes, played superbly by Ann Dowd (The Handmaid's Tale), Essie Davis (Game of Thrones, The Babadook) and Jessica Barden (The Lobster) must defend their lives, existence and beliefs when the priest attempts to sell their land from under them. What follows is macabre, blackly comic and disturbingly erotic, delivering a provocative and compelling mini-series.
