Caro returns!! | BENEDETTA with special guest CAROLYN PETIT | Feminist Frequency Radio 187

In our final episode of 2021, we welcome a very special guest: Carolyn Petit herself! Along with Anita and Ebony, the original FFR trio are discussing Paul Verhoeven’s BENEDETTA—the premiere of which faced protests by Catholics upset with the film’s depiction of illicit attraction between 17th century nuns. Does this ecstatically portrayed story of Sister Benedetta—a fervently devoted Renaissance nun consumed by the force of her transcendent visions—qualify as a Very Caro Movie? Listen in to our heated discussion to find out.
