Doubt is a movie about a nun (Meryl Streep) who suspects a priest(Phillip seymour Hoffman) of molesting a young black boy. The only evidence she has is from a fellow nun (Amy Adams) who tells her that the priest called the boy to the rectory and when he came back he was quite upset and had altar wine on his breath. The film takes off from there and becomes a study of certainty and human behavior and how personal feelings get in the way of our judgement.Streep's superb,richly layered performance deserves a best actress nomination and Hoffman is excellent as a man who could be a victim of prejudice or a monster. Amy Adams is absouletly tremendous as sister james and deserves the best supporting actress oscar for her performance. Viola Davis has only six minutes of screen time,but she comes through with a brilliant, heart wrenching portrayal of a woman who would sacrifice anything for her son. This film is a powerfully written movie that deserves to be seen. Highly reccomended

|Meryl is Excellent|
Meryl Streep once again proves she is the BEST! Best movie I have seen in quite a while!

||Good But Not Enough|
The superb acting in this film warranted much more of a story! The complexities of the main characters could in deed leave you seeing 8 instead of 4! I guarantee everyone will leave this film with a different perspective. Unfortunately, I was dumbfounded that the end was actually "the end!" Maybe the writers forgot this was a movie and not the stage play. All in all, I would still add this movie to my collection based on some of the best acting by more than one actor in a single film I've seen in a very long time!

||Streep at her best|
Doubt is a very good film that holds your attention from start to finish. I've heard alot of people say that Meryl Streep wins too many awards and that she gets to much attention during awards time. Well that's because she is just so good. This has to be one of her finest performances. Amy Adams and Philip Seymour Hoffman deliver Oscar-caliber performances as well.
