We saw this movie tonight. I chose it because I think Meryl Streep is amazing and the alternative was to age for 3 loooooong hours while watching Brad Pitt grow younger. It was a great choice, SO well written and acted. Plus (no spoilers, here) it manages, in a mere 1.75 hours, to convey all the complexity of a very difficult subject and bit of history (if only). I may have to go see it again.

Adore Meryl myself, and the length of the film attracts, but the subject matter puts me off - three (yes, THREE) of Boston's worst clerics ended up in my home parish.

But I expect we'll end up going soon.
