Brides of Christ


Dominic Maloney


Religion and social change are backdrops to this critically acclaimed miniseries about teachers and students at a convent school in 1960s Australia. Russell appears as Dominic in Volume II of the three-volume video set. Rosemary, a student at the school, begins to question the teachings of the Catholic Church while exploring her blossoming sexuality. Deemed a rebel by the nuns and a growing concern to her family, Rosemary becomes sexually promiscuous and develops a bad reputation among the town's boys. One night at a school dance, she meets Dominic, the sweet-natured older brother of a classmate. The two become friends, but Rosemary yearns for more. And then the Vietnam War cuts their relationship short.
