John Patrick Shanley brings his play Doubt to the screen, in a story about the quest for truth, the forces of change, and the devastating consequences of blind justice in an age defined by moral conviction. It's 1964, St. Nicholas in the Bronx. A vibrant, charismatic priest, Father Flyn, is trying to upend the school's strict customs, which have long been fiercley guarded by Sister Aloysius Beauvier, the iron-gloved Principal who believes in the power of fear and discipline. The winds of political change are sweeping through the community, and, indeed, the school has just accepted its first black student, Donald Miller. But when Sister James, a hopeful innocent, shares with Sister Aloysius her guilt-inducing suspicion that Father Flynn is paying too much personal attention to Donald, Sister Aloysius is galvanised to begin a crusade to both unearth the truth and expunge Flynn from the scgool. Now, without a shred of proof or evidence except her moral certainty, Sister Aloysius locks into a battle of wills with Father Flynn, a battle that threatens to tear apart the church and school with devastating consequences.

Drama starring Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Father Flynn (Seymour Hoffman) is a charismatic priest working at a Catholic school in the Bronx in 1964, whose progressive methods are at odds with the strict customs observed by the old-fashioned and disciplinarian school principal, Sister Aloysius Beauvier (Streep). When Sister Aloysius becomes suspicious that Father Flynn is taking more than a healthy interest in young black student Donald Muller (Joseph Foster), she embarks on a personal crusade to unearth the truth and make Flynn pay for his immoral behaviour. Amy Adams co-stars as Sister James, the young nun who gets caught up in the battle that ensues between them.
