Doubt:: Holy Vatican II Batman!

Doubt: Trailer 1 @ Apple Trailers

A short one today.

You could cut the tension in this trailer with a very large butter knife. Philip Seymour Hoffman as a progressive Catholic priest versus Meryl Streep the hardline conservative Sister. Round 1, ding ding! The acting looks superb as two monumental performers go toe to toe in a battle over the future of a Catholic school, and the direction of the Church itself. The movie probably wouldn't seem half as interesting if it didn't involve so much of the real world debate about the Catholic Church, but that's the point I suppose.

Good acting, high tension plot, the Catholic Church, ladies in full length black frocks. What more can you ask for in a drama?
