R.I.P. Philip Seymour Hoffman. The Bronx, 1964, a Catholic school has just admitted their first black student. Soon, one of the sister suspects a charismatic priest of having an inappropriate relationship with the student, and the revelation may tear apart the community.

Doubt is a pure vehicle for acting, combining brilliantly written words with a stunning cast. Meryl Streep is, as always, acting perfection, but her intensity is matched by Philip Seymour Hoffman (also always good,) and a surprisingly subdued and haunting performance from the usually bubbly Amy Adams. The film explores a difficult subject without moralizing.

Doubt

Based on a play, also entitled "Doubt," the film unfolds much like a piece of theater would with the dialogue and actors all in the spotlight. It's in this way that Doubt ultimately succeeds. The performances are all fantastic. Meryl Streep is brilliant in the lead role, while Philip Seymour Hoffman owns as the Priest and Amy Adams shines in a more reserved role; throughout the film, I found myself anxious for the next scene where the 3 would be together because they had great chemistry. Also Viola Davis delivers a great performance, she has only one scene in the film but makes it count by stealing it from the great Meryl Streep. All 4 garnered Oscar nominations. The film also benefits from a really good screenplay. It is never too obvious in delivering its themes and topics, but the dial...

Acting says it all

Sister Aloysius Beauvier is the principal of the church-run school St. Nicholas, who has her own way of handling and disciplining students. Suspicion arises in her when Sister James comes to her and told her about a particular black student called one day by Father Flynn and comes back to class upset and with a scent of alcohol on his breath. These information, not supported with any other evidence and witness, make Sister Beauvier doubt the priest.

***

I understand why this movie failed to snatch trophies and awards as a film in general. But what is much clearer is why this particular movie received awards for its commendable actors. Without any doubt, Streep, Hoffman, Adams, and Davis had knock-out performances in here making every scene worth watching. They delivered magnificentl...

Great Acting, No Doubt

Créditos pela qualidade de um filme tendem a ser, em geral e quase aleatoriamente, atribuídos ao diretor, atitude que pode resvalar num equívoco: a experiência proporcionada em Dúvida se deve, em grande parte, pelo conflito de personalidades e motivações eclodido entre personagens construídos com todo o know-how ao alcance de intérpretes de primeira categoria como Streep e Philip Seymour Hoffman. Conduzido com elegância comportada, parcimônia deliberada e distanciamento um tanto gélido pelo autor da peça original homônima – competente o bastante atrás das câmeras para não denunciar as raízes teatrais do material -, o drama é sustentado pelo entrechoque de olhares desconfiados, tensos duelos verbais, angústias interiores e ambiguidades deixadas no ar, elementos estes comunicados com sucess...
