EXCLUSIVE: Discovery + continues to ramp up it documentary slate. The fast-growing streamer has acquired rights to Rebel Heart , the Pedro Kos -directed documentary that premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival . It will now get a theatrical release as well as a global bow on the streamer later this year. Rebel Hearts centers on a trailblazing group of nuns in 1960s Los Angeles who stood up to the patriarchy of the Catholic Church. The sisters that ran the progressive Immaculate Heart College in L.A. fought for equality (they marched in Selma), their livelihoods and their own freedom against an all-powerful Cardinal who opposed their actions.
