Two Line Reviews - #370

Movie: Doubt(2008)

Plot: A negro kid is the first of his race to join a catholic school. The priest dotes and cares for him fondly. The principal of the school doubts it to be something else. She seeds the doubt in the mind of a teacher in the school as well and goes all out against the dumbfounded priest.

What works?The film's focus on just three prominent characters makes it sail through. It is fast.
Meryl Streep, in her stern principal role, revels! The scenes with Hoffmann who is equally good are fiercely contested action duels!
The kind character of Amy Adams & Viola Davis's revelation about the biy add contrast to the show.

Pretty Good, beyond doubt!
