Synopsis / Plot
Viridiana is a virtuous young woman living in a convent in Spain and about to take her vows as a nun, when she is urged by her superior to visit her closest living relative, the widowed Don Jaime (Fernando Rey), at his estate. The lonely Don Jaime asks Viridiana to oblige him by trying on his deceased wife's wedding gown, and the young niece does so. Later, the aroused Don Jaime drugs Viridiana, planning to ravish her while she is unconscious. Though he falters, he later commits suicide out of guilt and shame and Viridiana inherits the estate along with Don Jaime's prodigal and pragmatic son, Jorge.
