Yesterday we finally got to see Doubt with Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Amy Adams. I was somewhat afraid that it would be a Catholic bashing movie. A movie that makes the assumption that all priests are pedophiles or some other such nonsense.

I was quite pleasantly surprised that that wasn’t the case. The movie was quite well done, and Meryl Streep’s performance was outstanding as much of her work has been. Amy Adams as Sister James, a young nun, was also quite good, somewhat torn between her liking of Father Flynn and her subordinate role to Meryl Streep’s Sister Aloysius Beauvier, principle of the school.
