We Do Have Doubts About You

A film that starts with the priest talking about doubt and ends with a nun doubting.

The film, of course, is called Doubt, starring Meryl Streep, Amy Adams, and Philip Seymour Hoffman (with a special appearance of Viola Davis). This is a film of dialogue banter. There isn’t action and it relies on great acting. I loved the music. It wasn’t something I was exactly used to hearing in films and it fit with the atmosphere very well.

It does go without saying that the acting was superb beyond doubt and that the dialogue kept me in the film. If it hadn’t been for that I’d have given up on this film before it really began. It is slow and if you aren’t into films that rely on acting instead of action; relies on smarts rather than special effects, this film is not for you.

I am kind of confused if I should really like this film or not because the ending kind of confused me. Like was she right, what she wrong? Is that the whole point, to make you doubt her and even your own suppositions through the film? The fact that it made me think makes it a 4 1/2 star rating!
