not of this world

A 30-ish nun’s faith is tested when a jogger thrusts an abandoned baby into her arms. Suddenly, her isolated world expands, and she must wrestle with dilemmas faced by real people. The baby’s mere existence tests others as well: a lonely dry cleaner ‘s insular world is shaken when he realizes he might be the father; a young birth mother goes into hiding; and a lineup of hopeful prospective adoptive parents forms around the dream of a family. It’s a quiet movie about ordinary people who’ve withdrawn from the world, and it moves in gentle but profound ways. [italy, 2000]
