As a person considering joining an order there were a lot of this that think were incorredon't hate the movie but I feel like the director didn't know a thing about religious orders or what the definition of cloistered was. I have read about different orders and it was actually laughing at how uncarmelite-like these nuns were. I won't even point out all of the things wrong because there are a lot and I don't want to nitpick the entire movie. But I do have two questions.
Firstly, the habits the nuns wore didn't look very carmelite to me they actually look more like poor clares but I'm not 100% sure about that. Does anyone know what habits they were wearing were? They also changed to Franciscans in the second on (no idea how or why) but they stayed in the same habits and I know that's not the Franciscan habit.
Second question, they called the friars teaching at the school fathers... errr what? If I'm not mistaken priests dont dress that way. Can a friar or monk be called father I'm pretty sure friar means brother and monks are called brother as well at least that's what they called the two who lived in the house at my old school. The only two people who dressed like priests and were the priest from the archdiocese and the monsignor from the first one other than that they were dressed as friars. Were they dressed correctly? I'm pretty sure they weren't
Anyways no im not thinking about joining a religious order because of this movie because im pretty sure in real life none of that happens and i pity anyone who wanted to join for the reasons of the movie. But i mean it sort of bothered me since there were parts i know were wrong and others i wasnt too sure of. Apart from the things they got wrong (which was a lot) did anyone like the movies?
