See this film: Hadewijch at the Paramount Center

The real world lags behind the movies when it comes to attempts to reconcile the Western and Islamic worlds. One of the more disturbing and eloquent such film efforts is Bruno Dumont's Hadewijch (2009), in which the young title heroine (a haunting Julie Sokolowski) proves too zealous for the convent in which she studies to be a nun. They kick her out; adrift in Paris, she's attracted to an Arab boy and his pious older brother, who offer her a new outlet in her quest for spiritual purity. See it Friday or Saturday night at the Paramount Center, 559 Washington St, Boston | April 8-9 @ 7:15 + 9 pm | $10; $5 students | 617.824.8000 or
