As Catholic propaganda quite inept (a nun coaching her ward on how to get even with a bully, tooth for tooth!), and because it partly sets out to be a schmaltz-fest strangely even passes for one with some!, but as a love film, one of the most delicate, oblique, glancing and, yes, convincing in the genre.

65/100 (2.5). Though sharing some amount of moral candidness, The Bells of St. Mary’s is truly another run-of-the-mill Hollywood film full of clichés and melodrama to satiate the appetite of popcorn movie-watchers.
