great acting

A bitter, uptight nun plays her miserable outlook on what she believes to be right vs a modern priest trying to include all types into his less strict world of \"religious\" training. She is sharp tongued and straight laced and actually hateful toward the priest without any documentation of unlawful behaviour on his part.

Isn't the whole point of the movie to leave the viewer in complete 100% doubt? There is no solid evidence either way, so any conclusion is completely based on individual speculation ... speculation that is shaped by how each viewer interprets all the little nuances in the movie. Hats off to Hoffman for being so kind and so frustratingly vague at the same time. Streep, as usual was amazing.

NO DOUBT! This movie will have you flip flopping your "doubt" and thinking about it after it's over, great acting on Merly Streep and P.S. Hoffman... one the best movies I've seen this year so far.
