First Look: FX's "Black Narcissus"
All three episodes of the miniseries adaptation of Black Narcissus will land tomorrow on FX and as a final bit of promotion before it's premiere, a first look featurette has been released. Check it out below:
Based on the 1939 novel of the same name by Rumer Godden (Previously adapted into an acclaimed 1947 film), the premise seems mostly the same. A nun (Played by Gemma Arterton) is sent to establish a branch of her order with her fellow sisters in the Himalayas. However, there is more of a direct indication of the temptation she faces in her attraction to a World War I veteran they meet, helping to emphasize how the ideas of "erotic" have changed since the original book and film. Whether it will help stir the same questions about faith and temptation remains to be seen, but audiences will find out tomorrow. Stay tuned!
