Rather heartbreaking film about a woman committed to a mental institution for life because she was identified as a nymphomaniac in 1942 by her local priest who apparently was in love with her. She married an English pilot during WWII and has a baby. Her husband goes missing and her child is killed and she is blamed for the child’s death. She keeps notes and memories of her life in her bible and a new psychologist arrives at the hospital which is closing - he looks into her past. Vanessa Redgrave plays the elder Rose in the mental hospital and Mara Rooney plays the younger Rose both are excellent. Now I need to read the book it is based on since the movie is a bit unclear about the creepy priest and who concocted the story about the baby’s death. Not action packed but emotionally intriguing.
