Plot Summary: "The Holy Girl" (La Niña Santa) explores the burgeoning sexuality and religious fervor of two teenage girls, Amalia (Alche) and her best friend, Josefina (Zylberberg). Artfully piecing together a mosaic of nuanced details, fragments of sounds, and small moments, Lucrecia Martel creates a potent and specific portrait of adolescent life. Understanding the temptation of good - and the evil it causes - "The Holy Girl" delicately explores themes of sin, frustration and desire.
