Movie Info

Diane Keaton stars in this adaptation of Christopher Durang's popular one-act play +Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All for You as Sister Mary, a nun who teaches at a parochial school and has very firmly held ideas about sin, forgiveness, and the importance of church doctrine. As Sister Mary delivers a lecture on sin and its consequences, she's interrupted by several of her former students, who have little positive to say about how a Catholic education has impacted their lives. Sister Mary Explains It All also stars Brian Benben, Jennifer Tilly, and Wallace Langham; it was produced for the Showtime premium cable network, where it first aired in May 2001.

Critic Reviews for Sister Mary Explains It All

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (2)

The biggest problem is that the film simply can't re-create the theatricality of Durang's initial work.

Top Critic

These young adults are as tedious as Sister Mary is crazy. But Keaton is wondrous.
