Meryl Streep was OUTSTANDING, this is oscar worthy acting. The story itself was gripping and very compelling. Hoffman was also good in this , but Streep stole this show. This is a must see movie

Great movie, no doubt about it

I was worried that this film would devolve into cliché stereotypes, despite the presence of 2 exceptional actors. It did not. Full of subtle complexity, with tidbits of insights that were unexpected, this movie exceeded my highest hopes. I can’t wait for more of my friends to see it so that I can talk about it to more people.

Not disapppointing, yet not spectacular

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.

Thought Provoking

Written December 29, 2008
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.
