  • One of the more interesting scenes in the movie is when Sister Aloysius has a meeting with the mother of the student involved with the priest and the mother does not react in a typical way
  • I think it's the mark of a good movie to make you forget reality for awhile and be swept up in the drama

      Doubt is a movie that takes place in the Bronx, New York in 1964. It stars Phillip Seymour Hoffman as Father Flynn a charismatic priest affiliated with a Catholic Parochial school.

      Sister Aloysius is the Principal of the school.

      She is known as a strict disciplianarian.

      Amy Adams in a supporting role plays


      Sister James an innocent young nun.

      The central premise of the movie is that Sister James becomes suspicious of the priest Flynn who she feels may be taking indecent liberties with a child.

      She confides her suspicions to Sister Aloysius who starts a one woman crusade to discover the truth.

      One of the more interesting scenes in the movie is when Sister Aloysius has a meeting with the mother of the student involved with the priest and the mother does not react in a typical way.

      There are also interesting scenes between Streep ...

      and Hoffman as the nun confronts the priest with her suspicions.

      They both embody their characters fully and their chemistry is a pleasure to watch on the screen.

      The setting of this movie is very appropos to the time period and you almost feel that you are a participant

      in the movie.

      I think it’s the mark of a good movie to make you forget reality for awhile and be swept up in the drama.

      I would give this movie a high rating as did most of the critics who’se average rating for this film was B+.

      I have no “doubt” you will enjoy this film as much as I did.
