    Synopsis


    Doubt
    When the principal (Meryl Streep) of a Bronx Catholic High School accuses a popular priest (Philip Seymour Hoffman) of pedophilia, a young nun caught in between the feuding pair becomes hopelessly swept up in the ensuing controversy. 1964, St. Nicholas, the Bronx: The winds of change are sweeping through this tight-knit religious community, and charismatic priest Father Flynn (Philip Seymour Hoffman) is doing his best to adapt by revisiting the school's notoriously strict disciplinary practices. Unfortunately Father Flynn's progressive ideas stand in stark contrast to the longstanding beliefs of Sister Aloysius Beauvier (Meryl Streep), the iron-willed principal, who believes that an oppressive environment of punishment and fear is the only way to keep the student body in line. Suddenly into this tempestuous environment appears young Donald Miller, St. Nicholas' first black student. When hopeful innocent Sister James (Amy Adams) reluctantly reveals to Sister Beauvier that Father Flynn and Donald have been spending an unusual amount of time together in the church rectory, the unrelentingly righteous headmistress begins a merciless crusade to reveal the beloved clergyman as a lecherous child molester and have him permanently expunged from the school. Yet despite her moral certainty that Father Flynn has committed such an unspeakable transgression, Sister Beauvier has not a shred of actual evidence to back up her audacious claim. Now, as Sister Beauvier and Father Flynn enter into an epic battle of wills, the shock waves set into motion by their explosive confrontation threaten to destroy one man's reputation and tear apart the entire surrounding community. John Patrick Shanley adapted his own play for the screen under the guidance of producer Scott Rudin (The Queen, Notes on a Scandal). ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      If you do NOT like advertisements in your DVDs then you will NOT want to buy this DVD. For the film it’s self, Meryl SHOULD have won the Oscar for this 1 instead of that person where their career is being s stripper & taking their clothes off in nearly every movie they do. The entire cast was good in their roles, Philip as the Father, Amy as the young nun. Now, Viola Davis's role was SO SMALL. And, her character was walking asleep & did NOT care about her child. Surprised she got an Oscar nomination for such a small role. Now, the DVD package--we step in to the old days of DVD's with a plain silver disc. BORING. Now, the ads I mentioned before. NO CHAPTER SEARCH LIST in the package, all you get are 2 ads. When you input the disc it wants to show you coming attraction (ads). When you start to play the movie, ANOTHER AD. Nice way to miss it skip to the next chapter to ACTUALLY GET TO THE MOVIE OR WHAT YOU PAID FOR.

      Doubt is a provocative, pared-down work that in the theatre carried the subtitle "A Parable", and it has four outstanding performances. At the centre are two of the finest actors, Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman...... Hoffman will be missed

      This is a movie that has it all. Great acting with 4 Academy Award nominated acting performances. Great to watch with a group of people to get everyone's opinion at the end. Moving and cleverly written, you may have 'Doubt' in what you believe in in the end! You will want to watch it again.
