No doubts about ‘Doubt’

This is a great movie; I’d give it four and a half of five stars, no sweat. Well worth seeing. Excellent characterizations, excellent acting (as if you’ll ever get anything less with Meryl Streep), wonderful cinematography, strong pacing, strong editing. Only problem was that the sound cut out in a pivotal scene, so my friend and I have freebies to go see it again (or another one if we’d rather). The movie is obviously adapted from a stage play, which I think gives it more power than a regular screenplay (at least, a great deal more than many, many movies I’ve seen recently—and don’t forget I’ve done very little but watch movies in the last three wretched weeks! You’ll leave still wondering whether it’s true, and what you think says more, I suspect, about you than about the movie.
