In 1964 the winds of change are sweeping through Sister Aloysius’ St. Nicholas school. Father Flynn (Philip Seymour Hoffman), a charismatic priest, is advocating reform of the school’s strict customs, and the first black student has just been accepted. When a fellow nun tells Sister Aloysius that Father Flynn may be paying too much personal attention to the student, Sister Aloysius begins a personal crusade against the priest — despite her lack of evidence.


There is no evidence. There are no witnesses. But for one, there is no doubt.


Viola Davis, who was nominated for an Academy Award for her role as Mrs. Miller, only appears in two scenes. The first is an extended dialogue with Meryl Streeps character, Sister Aloysius. In the second, she appears only for about 10 seconds and does not speak.
