Little Sister, as directed by Zach Clark, is a loose remake of Fred Zinnemann's The Nun's Story.

Only it's set in North Carolina and New York, has no violence in Africa, and has diminutive Addison Timlin in the Audrey Hepburn role.

Except that Timlin's character, Colleen, a novitiate returning home to visit her rather dysfunctional family in Ashville, finds that she can easily return to her goth teen roots. I seem to recall that in The Nun's Story, but not certain.

This low-budget, darkly humorous tale of going home, works on it's own level, which seems to say that you can go home again.

Sort of.

But then you leave.

Shot on a Red Epic Dragon, Kino Lorber's Blu-ray shines, along with audio in 5.1, which I also don't recall in it's 1959 counterpart.

Worth the 91 minute time expenditure, if only to become acquainted with young Ms Timlin.
