Abstract:

Viridiana, about to take final religious vows, visits her uncle at his country estate. He drugs her and attempts rape, finds he cannot go through with it, and hangs himself, leaving the estate to Viridiana and his illegitimate son, Jorge. While Jorge purues plans to modernize the estate, Viridiana attempts to convert it into a haven for derelicts. Left alone, the beggars take over the house for a feast which becomes an orgy; one of the beggars rapes Viridiana when she and Jorge return home. After the beggars are dispersed by police, Viridiana assumes more modern dress and joins in a card game with Jorge and his mistress. A powerful film widely considered to one of Buñuel's most important works.
