Doubt

In Screen on December 12, 2008 at 9:34 am

I am anxiously anticipating Friday, December 12th and the release of  John Patrick Shanley’s film, Doubt.  Shanley wrote the screenplay based on his very own stage play of the same name, which in 2005 was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and also the very prestgious Tony Award for Best Play.  

Ideas of religion, authority, and morality are underlying paradoxes throughout the story of  intense suspicion, where the charismatic priest of St. Nicolas’ school in the Bronx is giving too much personal attention to a black student.  Meryl Streep, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, and Amy Adams star in this heated, impassioned film.
