Viola Davis


25 Dec, 2008

Davis plays Mrs. Miller, the mother of a young boy enrolled in Catholic school, in this drama from John Patrick Shanley. Sister Aloysius Beauvier , the school’s principal, questions Father Flynn’s relationship with that student and recruits Sister James to monitor the priest’s actions. It is left up to the viewer to decide if her suspicions are correct or if she wants Father Flynn removed for her own reasons.

But I think it’s when Mrs. Miller comes in that you begin to understand that the argument isn’t just within these insular walls of this church, that it involves issues of rigid belief systems, and broadening your mind and your heart.
