A FEMINIST READING OF DOUBT AND CALVARY

Deborah Mondadori Simionato

Resumo


Religion plays an important role in the lives of Western people, in particular Christianity and the Catholic Church. The arts are constantly trying to represent religion’s relevance and significance through works such as the film Doubt (2008), written by John Patrick Shanley, and the film Calvary (2014), written and directed by John Michael McDonagh. These two stories deal with sexual abuse and power relations within the Catholic Church. For that reason, this work proposes to analyse these two works in order to establish a connection between the patriarchal society and its abuse towards women, and the Church and its abuse towards children, mainly boys, proving that these children are as oppressed as women by the same system.
