UPDATE: Am I prescient or what??? Later in the day, Bristol gave birth to her "overdue" baby. What did she name the li'l guy? TRIPP. Just like his brother uncle TRIG. Gimme a break.Remember how Bristol was due December 15, so she couldn't POSSIBLY be the mother of Trig? Well, it's December 29 and no baby. Two weeks late and counting.
In 1964, young Donald Miller (Joseph Foster II) is the first African-American student at St. Nicholas Catholic school in the Bronx, where Principal Sister Aloysius (Meryl Streep) literally puts the fear of God into her pupils. Nothing escapes her notice, most especially dissidence—the institution's newest priest, Father Flynn (Philip Seymour Hoffman) has rubbed her the wrong way with a sermon in praise of doubt (which binds us all as surely as does faith) and with his irreverential attitude. Thanks to some gossip supplied by Sister James (Amy Adams), who's noticed that Father Flynn seems to have singled out Donald Miller with a one-on-one meeting in the rectory, she has all the proof she needs to know the priest is molesting the boy, and all the ammunition she requires to attempt to oust him from his position.
