Excellent acting by all 3 lead characters. The story itself was not as intense as I thought it might be so I was a little disappointed. Amy Adams was absolutely believeable as a nun.

Amy Adams was spectacular, and of course, Meryl Streep was as well. Adams' caliber of acting surprised me. It was very slow, not that it's a bad thing, but it takes a very subdued and calm attitude to be able to sit through it and not be bored. I liked it and thought it was worth the ticket price, but I would not see it again nor will I buy the DVD.

Not impressed. Mildly entertaining, similar to a mass marketed paperback romance novel- seems a little dirty but might get interesting. When on a overnight red-eye and cannot sleep, this story will entertain you better than the snores around you... maybe. Seems like a "johnny-come-lately" attempt to relive the church scandals from years ago. All rather stale, nothing new. One redeeming quality, it is a short movie!

THE STORY IS VERY GOOD AND TRUE MANY TIMES AS IT TURNS OUT. I AM SURE STREEP WILL WIN THE OSCAR BECAUSE SHE'S SO GOOD IN THIS PART.....IT IS SCARY. HER DOUBT IS NOT THAT HE DID IT. HER DOUBT IS CONCERNING HER FAITH IN GOD.
