New Trailer for "Doubt"

Here’s the new trailer for the film "Doubt," starring Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman, based on the Pulitzer-Prize-winning play by John Patrick Shanley.  The new movie focuses on a Catholic priest (Hoffman) accused of sexual improprieties by a sister (Streep) in 1964.  The film will be out on December 12.  Having spent a few days on the set as one of several "technical advisers" I’ll predict that it’s going to be superb.  But don’t take my word for it: check out the preview.

I am very glad I know about this film. This year I ordered and watched every film that Netflex has with Meryl Streep in it. I had seen most of them before. The title of this film intrigues me. Doubt in not the opposite of faith. Certainty is the opposite of faith. Kevin Hunt is a Trappist monk, and I once came across a comment he made about doubt. He tell us that doubt has been a gift for him because it keeps his interior life messy. This messiness keeps him going.

This time the victims themselves are not having it. From the moment the first shots rang out, they captured the horror and broadcast it, forced the nation to confront it and talk about it.

Given the moment we are in, you might think a lot of shows on television would be trying to talk about current events or “America” in some way. But in point of fact, there aren’t that many. And even fewer are doing it well.
