Not a perfect film...By a customer from Winchester , 04 Feb 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]..but as near perfect a set of performances as we could hope for. A gripping drama which prompts lots of questions afterwards and allows scope for alternative explanations, Doubt after all being the name of the movie. For me the screenplay didn't always seem true, but the cast made that all but irrelevant and for fans of Meryl Streep (who isn't?) you won't be disappointed. Brad (sorry, Philip, but for me you will always be Lebowski's butler) was also outstanding, but perhaps the best performance of all was the utterly convincing Amy Adams.

Impeccable filmBy a customer , 01 Nov 2013This might be the most well-crafted and impeccable film I have ever seen. Everything about this film was beautifully done - good plot, suberb acting, plenty of tension and pathos.
Pure DramaBy My2Sense (10 reviews) , 21 Sep 2013Strong conflicts and and even stronger characters make this a great drama. I 'doubt' you'll be disappointed. You'll almost forget you're watching a movie.
Thought provoking performance by Meryl StreepBy a customer , 02 Jun 2013An excellent film,with good performances from the 3 principle actors .Meryl Streep as always is utterly convincing and gives a subtle performance as Sister Aloysious. She initially appears bullying and two dimensional but as the role develops her compassion becomes apparent. PSH plays an excellent role,at first a sympathetic character but as the story develops more self serving and weak. The doubt of the title is open to interpretation. Thoroughly enjopyable and thought provoking.
brilliant filmBy a customer , 15 May 2013Brilliant performances by both PSH and MS. A film of uncertainty and doubt, you could be persuaded by either of the main two characters. watch it now.
For people who actually think.By a customer , 10 Feb 2013Intelligent, understated, well written and well acted. A movie for grown ups, which is rare these days. Meryl streep is particularly good.
