A nun that outsells Elvis and the Beatles. It’s a true story too, but I doubt that many who read this review will be old enough to remember the song, Dominique, by the singing nun, Jeannine Deckers. Interestingly, there was another film made long ago about the life of the singing nun that made it out to be a much rosier story, and had a lot less to do with truth.

This biography skilfully examines the life of a performer who struggles to recreate the success of her first single. Her frustration is palpable as she still has the talent that initially achieved her notoriety, but confronts ongoing problems achieving similar results.
