Streep. Adams. Hoffman.
That might as well be the tagline for this film as it was the only thing that convinced me to watch it, and for good reason too, because these three absolutely obliterated it.
This is a spectacular hidden gem of a film from 2008 about a priest (Hoffman) who is accused by a nun (Streep) of misconduct with a black boy. What follows is an ambiguous, beautifully acted, brilliant portrayal of fear and doubt and uncertainty.
If you’re scrolling Netflix looking for an obscure film worthy of your time, I doubt that “Doubt” will disappoint you in that department. Incredible.
