Based on the Pulitzer Prize Winning Play, this 2008 movie is amazingly well-acted with quite the twist. Addressing the question of how far you should go to confront villains and perpetrators in order to protect the innocent, this movie is riveting and profoundly disturbing at the same time.
The confrontation is between the fierce and feisty head teacher (Meryl Streep) and the feminine and progressive head priest, Father Brendan Flynn (Phillip Seymor Hoffman), who is, in fact, a child-exploiting pedophile.
Full of hidden messages and dire warnings… worth more than one viewing…
