Doubt movie review
Starring: Meryl Streep, Amy Adams, and Philip Seymour Hoffman
2008; 104 minutes
I've been wanting to see Doubt for a long time now. I mean, come on, Meryl Streep. She's a phenomenal actress.
You might not already know this about me, but if I want to see a movie, I generally avoid hearing anything about it. And, that's the case with Doubt as well.
This time I was really successful. I thought that it took place in the 1760s, not the 1960s. And, I knew nothing of the premise (a nun believes that a priest is sexually abusing a boy and confronts him).
There are some great parts to this movie. But there are also some that are lacking in my opinion. All the acting is absolutely amazing and brilliant. And the filming is really great too. I liked the way the camera filmed off-kilter when Streep's character was feeling a bit off.
I enjoyed Doubt. But, as far as recommending it, I don't know. The subject matter might be displeasing to some.
However, if you want to see one the best-acted films I've seen in a long time, check it out.
