Summary, etc.:
Sister Aloysius, the rigid and feared principal of the Saint Nicholas Church School, has an intense dislike for the progressive and popular parish priest Father Flynn. She believes she's uncovered the ultimate sin when she hears he has taken a special interest in a troubled boy. But without proof, the only thing certain is doubt. Based on the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning play.
