      I have been skipping over Doubt on my Netflix list, because quite frankly, I couldn’t tell what the movie was about. And when I looked at the synopsis, I couldn’t really get a grip on the gist of the film.

      It seemed like some kind of boring abstract little number that would have me snoozing in two seconds.


      Indeed, it is a “quiet” film.

      But the story is quite emotional, and very interesting in terms of the philosophical questions that the characters ask themselves.

      The story is about a young black boy in the Bronx who has been accepted as the first African American children to be accepted into a prestigious Catholic grade school.

      As the story ...


      • progresses, it becomes evident that there might be some improper behavior going on between the assistant pastor and the little boy.

        Two of the nuns, Meryl Streep and Amy Adams question the father about an incident in which he invited the young boy to the rectory.

        When Donald comes back with liquor on his breath, it is assumed that something

        bad happened.

        There are two varying stories, and the nuns are left to their own assumptions—doubt.

        The principles in this film are very well played out.

        And by the time the viewer reaches the end, there is indeed a lot of doubt left behind.

        Watch this if you are a thinking person who likes a philosophical cliff hanger.
