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.
