This review is from: Lilies Of The Field [DVD] (DVD)
Saw this on tv as a film many years ago and liked it.
When I saw it listed, had to have it as it is charming,moving but not too serious(there are touches of humour). Generally a feelgood film, no harm in that, something you don't get too much of these cynical times.
Poitier deserved his Oscar for it. He can usually be relied on to give a good performance. It showed in the developing relationship with the nuns especially the wiley Mother Superior and the Anapabtist Poitier character.
