Doubt (30-Oct-2008)

Director: John Patrick Shanley

Writer: John Patrick Shanley

Keywords: Drama

A preist's relationship with an embattled Catholic school student is brought under examination by the school's principal.

Liberalism sweeps through the Bronx amidst the headiest days of the Civil Rights Era, taking the Catholic-aligned St. Nicholas School along with it as young Donald Miller is accepted as its first black student in 1964. Donald's friendship and alliance with progressive priest Brendan Flynn is viewed with suspicion by Sister James, whose questions regarding the exact nature of their relationship portend the intervention of the explosive Sister Aloysius Beauvier, the school's principal and a conservative demagogue bent on keeping her dominion's traditions set in stone.
