(USA, 2008, 103 minutes)
In a Bronx Catholic school in 1964, the unashamedly conservative principal suspects the progressive new parish priest of molesting a young boy, but has no proof. Well-made but modest opening out of an acclaimed stage play by its own author, with uniformly excellent performances making up for the loss of intensity from stage to screen.
