Genre: Drama

Starring: Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams


Set in 1964, a Catholic school in Bronx, New York. is run by Sister Aloysius Beauvier (Streep). Being the school principal, the students are afraid of her and she is a strict follower of discipline. Her way of life knows no fun and joy and only strict discipline and adherence to the rules. On the contrary, the church priest, Father Flynn (Hoffman) is fun-loving and knows how to balance work and play together. Sister Aloysius is a very suspicious being and always doubts peoples actions and their motives behind it. She doubts Father Flynn and his attitude towards the school boys and manages to get school teacher, Sister James (Adams) to spy on him. They suspect Father Flynn's behaviour with a boy as not as that of love and care but of other non-acceptable motives. Even though there is no firm evidence pointing towards the accusation, Sister Aloysius is banking upon her own beliefs of right against wrong and wishes to fight with the Father on these precise thoughts. The movie has an amazing star cast and each of them put on healthy performances. The movie has an interesting plot that it builds up upon but has an extremely abrupt ending. It shows how many of our beliefs of reality are actually centred not upon facts but suspicion which turns into faith and later a fact. Meryl Streep in particular, shines above the rest.

Thumbs up: Performances
Thumbs down: Abrupt end
