Mary Clancy Mills and Rachel Devery Harding , are somewhat reluctant students and largely lovable troublemakers at St. Francis Academy, an all-girls Catholic boarding school in Pennsylvania run by a charming order of women religious.
The film follows them through three years at the school, during which time they meet their match in the mother superior played by Rosalind Russell. Much of my experience in Catholic education has been of the all-male variety. I turned to executive editor Kerry Weber to find out if this film accurately reflects the experience of women in Catholic schools.
Catholic Movie Reviews: Spotlight
The women religious in the film are clever, loving and forgiving, and their characters are rightly treated as people who led full lives before their religious life and who show deep love for the life they chose. But is it a good film? She also tells Mary about the extraordinary lives of her fellow women religious. Mary Clancy: Rache! I need something to stuff in the window.
It is set just days before the United Kingdom is set to join the Eurozone which feels particularly outdated for our current geopolitical climate and Damian Etel has to decide what to do with the money while traversing obstacles like his shrewd older brother, the criminals intent on getting their cash back, and his widowed father trying his best. It is a movie that deals with Catholic themes without relying on tired tropes or stereotypes.
The school is staffed by laypeople, just like those who ran the schools I attended. There are no mean old nuns—or really any religious represented at all—manipulating Damian into feeling guilt, or guiding him on his little path to sainthood. The only men and women religious in the film are the saints that appear to Damian. The martyrs of Uganda tell him about how access to clean drinking water can improve the lives of people living in rural poverty. The apparitions of these historical figures are wonderful, but they seem unrelated to what the Sister Regina Meehan test is about.
In excluding contemporary men and women religious from the film, the movie props up lay leadership in a way that feels true to my own experience in the church. I think Sister Regina would be proud to give it a pass. The film is a period drama set at a Catholic elementary school in the Bronx in The heightened tension drives the narrative, all underscored by a sense of doubt. The story is a parable without a singular prescribed meaning. There are a handful of issues with the production of the film here and there, some that can be particularly irksome to the trained Catholic eye a few anachronistic vestments and hymns.
Note to costume designers everywhere: bring your clerical consultant in before shooting begins. James Martin, S. Sister Regina Meehan Test: The writing and acting are of the highest quality, making the watching experience riveting. Father Brendan Flynn: You have no right to act on your own! You have taken vows, obedience being one! You answer to us! You have no right to step outside the church!
Sister Aloysius Beauvier: I will step outside the church if that's what needs to be done, 'til the door should shut behind me! I will do what needs to be done, though I'm damned to Hell! You should understand that, or you will mistake me. The odd couple storyline is familiar and unsurprising, but Melfie uses it as a vehicle to tell a heartwarming, enjoyable, funny story. He innovates elsewhere, challenging the way Catholic education is represented on the big screen.
