Adapted from Matthew G. Lewis' 1796 cult gothic novel, THE MONK follows the tragic destiny of Brother Ambrosio in 17th century Catholic Spain. Abandoned at birth at the gates of a Capuchin monastery, Ambrosio was raised by the friars. Today, he has grown into a preacher admired far and wide for his fervor. Feared, though, for his righteousness, he is believed to be immune from temptation. The arrival of a mysterious apprentice undermines his convictions, leading him onto the path of sin.
