Lilies of the Field

Lilies of the Field ★★★½

A fun movie with a mischievous relationship that develops between a black Baptist labourer and a Catholic nun superior from Berlin with a heavy German accent. 

I suspect that in 1963 this movie would have been considered progressive in terms of black power, accentuated by the fact that Sidney Poitier was the first black to ever win Oscar for best actor in this movie.

This evening we assembled our three brothers in our three separate locations across BC and Alberta to watch this movie “together” in honour of Sidney Poitier who died yesterday at age 94.
