I give this movie 2 stars, although Meryl Steep did a great job and deserved her academy award nomination for best actress.
Based on a Pulitzer prize winning play, it is about a priest accused of sexually abusing a child in Streep’s Catholic school. It is not a topic with which to create a feel-good movie.
But fortunately, neither was it harsh. The pace of the movie was slow enough to generate doubt in everyone, making the viewer realize that none of us are exempt from doubt in its most subtle forms. See www.doubt-themovie.com
