"Vision" celebrates life of Hildegard von Bingen

Vision, a new film by German filmmaker Margarethe von Trotta, tells the story of 12th-century Benedictine nun Hildegard von Bingen and her "her frequent skirmishes with the male-dominated Catholic hierarchy." V. A. Musetto of the New York Post has a review.

In addition to her work as a composer of sacred music, Bingen was a playwright, poet, herbalist and a powerful defender of women's rights.

The movie was filmed at original cloisters in Germany. The IMDb has a trailer from the film.
