Plot Summary

Based on the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Awardwinning play, Doubt is a mesmerizing, suspensefilled drama with four riveting performances from Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams and Viola Davis that will have you pinned to the edge of your seat. Sister Aloysius Beauvier (Streep), the rigid and fearinspiring principal of the Saint Nicholas Church School, suffers an extreme dislike for the progressive and popular parish priest Father Flynn (Hoffman). Looking for wrongdoing in every corner, Sister Aloysius believes she's uncovered the ultimate sin when she hears Father Flynn has taken a special interest in a troubled boy. But without proof, the only thing certain is doubt.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: John Patrick Shanley's Doubt left me less moved than querulously dissatisfied despite the impressive performances of Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams, and Viola Davis in all the key roles. – Andrew Sarris, New York Observer, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Thanks to a nearly perfect cast, this provocative glimpse into the Catholic priest child-molestation scandal manages to be deeply disturbing on several levels. – Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: I'm pretty happy with the conclusion that I've put together in my head. But, as with any certainty, I've got my doubts. – Simon Miraudo, Quickflix, Nov 2, 2014

Fresh: There are times when Doubt feels like a sermon. Shanley highlights key themes as if the audience was a particularly dim-witted congregation. His direction, too, when it's not dolloping on the symbolism, can be stilted. – Sukhdev Sandhu, Daily Telegraph, Jun 24, 2010

Meryl Streep is a winner.

Just when you think she can't get better, she does. Streep can't save the whole film, though. The always overrated Amy Adams gets by as she always does, cute-as-a-button and bringing nothing new to the table. I was expecting more from the film, plot-wise, and feel that this is one of those plays that should have stayed a play.

No doubt ...

Streep and Hofmann deliver the very best acting you can ever get. Although you expect a certain background of the story, there are enough surprises and twists - if only defined by the meanings of the word "DOUBT".
