"Doubt" stars Meryl Streep and Amy Adams as nuns teaching in a Catholic school in Boston and has Philip Seymour Hoffman as the parish priest who Streep suspects of grooming the new scholarship student, who happens to be black, to be his victim. The story is not so far fetched, and having been a play, it is cohesive and well written. Streep does a great job as a stern head mistress of the school, while Adams, with her fetchingly large and innocent blue eyes, does a good job of playing the naive young teacher who doesn't believe what she doesn't know to be fact, yet passive aggressively reports the priest to Streep for suspicious activity. You will get to decide - I said yes, Alex said no.
