THE CALLING features a stellar cast led by Oscar® nominees Brenda Blethyn, (Secrets & Lies, Little Voice) and Susannah York (They Shoot Horses, Don’t They, Superman) and BAFTA winning actress Rita Tushingham (A Taste of Honey, Dr Zhivago).

Joanna (Emily Beecham) is graduating from college when she faces up to a shocking truth she has been avoiding her whole life – she feels the calling to become a Nun. Her best friend is horrified, her boyfriend is pissed off and her mother feels it’s just a phase. When she finally gets to the convent, she butts heads with an outrageous cast of characters, from the politically active Novice Sister Ignatious (Blethyn) to the psychotic Mother Superior (York) and wonders if she’s following the right path after all.

Through all of her crazy misadventures with the problematic sisters, she senses the strength of the bond they share and realizes she might not need a miracle to fit right in.
