Emma Watson will soon be seen as a nun in the political thriller “Colonia Dignidad.” She says that the role is by far the most challenging role she has ever performed. Read on to know more details.

Emma Watson may have finished her stint as Hermione, but she has some really good acts in her kitty. She will soon be seen in the moderately budgeted political thriller, “Colonia Dignidad,” challenging herself to perform a true to life portrayal of a nun. MailOnline reported that Watson looks every bit a nun in the movie, down to the dowdy getup and clothes. Another website, the Nation, claims that she is barely recognizable in her grey outfit.

The movie is based on the true story of a Nazi cult called Colonia Dignidad. The cult operated in the nineteen seventees. It was headquartered in Chile during the time of the reign of the dictator Augusto Pinochet. The story is built around Watson’s character, Lena, whose husband strangely dissappears. Lena suspects that the Nazi Cult has something to do with it. And so she pretends to be a nun to spy on the Nazi cult and its activities. The film also stars Daniel Bruhl, who has done the movie “Rush” before, and will soon be seen in Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War.”

The film is Watson’s big effort to be recokened as an actor. Like all child stars, Watson is looking to break into more serious acting territory with this role. She has obviously had commercial success, but she wants to show the world that she has much talent in the acting department as well. She also wants to show that she has outgrown Hermione Granger from the “Harry Potter” series and is willing to take on new roles.

The film will be released in September in Germany and later this year in United Kingdom.

Emma Watson is also going to star in Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast.”
