We saw "Doubt" (starring Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman) this afternoon and thought it was excellent. As well as the human characters, there was an additional character - the weather - very reminiscent of the landscape/weather influences in E Annie Proulx's work. The film is dedicated to a Sister Margaret McEnree SC- who was formerly known as Sister James (the name shared, or perhaps of, a Nun in the film). Rating: 4/5 - well worth a look even though others have suggested it is too much like the one-act Pulitzer Prize winning play by author-screenwriter-director John Patrick Shankey from which this work hails. What is in "Doubt" -did he or didn't he; will she or won't she; has she or hasn't she? Much to ponder post-theatre.
