Some of the reviews say Meryl Streep broke character in the last scene. I submit just the opposite. I think she continued her manipulation with her unrelenting goal of the truth and obtaining it by whatever means were at her disposal. Enough said, it is a film based on well developed main characters that show how your opinions and views are shaped by your character or lack thereof.

I THOUGHT THAT IT WAS A REAL GOOD MOVIE. NOT AT ALL WHAT I EXPECTED.

I liiked the movie...it was very thought provoking and the acting was terrific. The nuns behavior and life style seemed more like the early 50's than the early 60's which was the time period of this film. There were some things in the movie, like the priests obsession with long and clean finger nails, that seemed out of place. I think it would be a great movie to watch with a group and then meet afterwards to discuss.

It depicts the tension between principal and priest very effectively. Streep and Hoffman are great and though we aren't privy to whether he did it they perform in a manner which makes it not that important.
I feel Amy Adams should receive Oscar consideration for her excellent acting.
