Doubt centers on a nun who confronts a priest after suspecting him of abusing a black student, but he denies the charges. Much of the play’s quick-fire dialogue tackles themes of religion, morality and authority. As with the play, the film is also set in 1964.
The trailer’s enticing. Meryl Streep at her best again after the recent hit Mamma Mia. “Doubt” will release somewhere around December, 2008.
