5 nominations "Oscar", 5 nominations Golden globe 3 nominations premium "BAFTA" 10 premiums still, the film was nominated for 19 nominations for other awards. Here such a success with picture "Doubt" by John Patrick Shanley he took his play for which received the Pulitzer.

The film reveals the confrontation of two people of God: sister Aloysius (Meryl Streep), a Director of the new York Catholic school, adhering to monastic views on children and father Brendan (Philip Seymour Hoffman), a supporter of the progressive role of the Church in education. Their fight results in that sister Aloysius accuses father Brendan in immoral relations with one of pupils.

John Patrick Shanley in your feed have focused on theatricality, "speaking" and dialogs. And in these conversations face conservatism and reformism, women's and men's, the power of faith and the power of confidence, backed by evidence. And faced so much so ambiguous that it difficult to understand whose side to take in this confrontation. Not here is no significant events in addition to talking. But the speech boil such passion that today is not so often see in the movies. All the four main characters — Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams viola Davis — was nominated for "Oscar". Apart from talented actor's works, the film contains some work of thought. Reflections are built around a sense of the doubt. Heroes of the doubt God order themselves and their environment. What interestingly, the viewer so not know: guilty or not guilty hero Hoffman. The only person who has the Director knows about the guilt or innocence of father Brendan — the Philip Seymour Hoffman. The rest of the actors involved in the film, so not said.

"Doubt" — is one of the best examples of the genre of psychological drama. Shenli made the film, in the only psychological construct, but also issues of morality and ethics.

A psychological drama, the grandmaster played Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman in the direct participation of Amy Adams. If  the"Oscar" was awarded for the ensemble cast, I think this trio, viscouse sparks from air would competitors. Built almost exclusively on the dialogues of the film looks on one breath and keeps voltage first to the last frame. In some episodes literally feel electric shocks, slipping between the characters and leading up to a dramatic emotional explosion...

Strict and conservative sister Eloise (school Director at the Church) is not can accept a new priest, because it is not so, what should be in her understanding of the pastor: he is watching a, shows kindness and listening to the congregation and ministered in the Church for the boys. It represents the foundations and dogmas, and father — progress development.

Between the two of them is as pure and bright soul — sister James. Sister Eloise sows in the soul of the girl doubts about the warm relationship between father Flynn to the dark skinned newcomer to the school, to which watchfulness and rejection include other students. With this time the attitude of the young teacher to the priest, like the swing, soaring then one or the other way, and she may come in balance, rid of this doubt.

But sister Eloise don't allow myself to doubt. She sure ready to go any action in order to force father Flynn to leave the parish. She won't feel sorry for the boy's mother, sharing with her their assumptions issued for the facts. She did not disdain the deception to truth has triumphed. But will it satisfaction? That will stay with her after all?.. JUST A QUESTION!..

A new film by John Patrick Shanley immerses the viewer in the Church school, mid-20th century the reign of medieval orders. Under the gaze of the Director are all aspects of the internal life of the Catholic Church: the life, traditions and customs, and main — the education of children. In the film "Doubt" it's served and reveals the theme of pedophilia. Not mention the presence of the detective story.

The main "wealth" of this work — it is the actors:
Excellent game Meryl Streep — the actress of the highest level, each role which is confirmed.
Expressive and emotional Amy Adams, reminiscent of Jane Eyre.
Brilliant Philip Seymour Hoffman in the role of father, priest.

Doubt "tormented" is not only the main characters, but and had been planted in my soul. It is a complete "immersion" in the story, matching the surrounding reality of you.

That is to say, the movie "Doubt" — craftsmanship. This film will certainly appeal to critics, but the average viewer might seem very gloomy and overly serious.
