Does faith arises as a result of doubt or certainty??
Here comes a movie with magnificent piece of writing coupled with Oscar winning cast of Meryl Streep , Phillip Hoffman and Oscar nominated Amy Adams. The movie encounters the search for the truth led by Sister Aloysius ( Meryl) , principal of a parochial church on the basis of an incident reported by Sister James (Amy); a young, innocent and kind hearted nun concerning a possible misconduct by Father Flynn ( Phillip); charismatic, popular, progressive pastor.
The beauty of this drama is that every character battles his/her own concept of morality, truth, certainity and yet each one of them convinces the viewers of their reasoning and justification, leaving the audience in doubt and with no certain answer. Doubt is an entertaining, humourous, disturbing drama with some impeccable acting by Meryl Streep and late Phillip Seymour Hoffaman.
Amy Adams charcter although evolves as the movie progresses towards its end, but her outstanding performance deserves appreciation and applause as does the rest of the cast.
Highly recommended drama.
