Doubt -- the story of a steely nun facing off
against a heroic priest, whom she fixates on for giving
special attention to the school’s only black
(effeminate) kid -- worked because of a top notch
cast and its unique brand of stylized narrative. If
only the excellent Meryl Streep and Viola Davis were enough
to make the movie work quite so well.
