JOHN Patrick Shanley brings his Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play, DOUBT (15) to the screen as a gripping story about the quest for truth, the forces of change, and the devastating consequences of blind justice in an age defined by moral conviction.

Meryl Streep, pictured left, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Adams star.

It's 1964 in the Bronx. A vibrant, charismatic priest, Father Flynn (Hoffman) is trying to upend the schools' strict customs, which have long been fiercely guarded by Sister Aloysius Beauvier (Streep), the iron-gloved principal who believes in the power of fear and discipline.

Times are changing and the school has just accepted its first black student, Donald Miller. But when Sister James, a hopeful innocent, shares with Sister Aloysius her suspicion that Father Flynn is paying too much personal attention to Donald, Sister Aloysius sets off on a personal crusade to unearth the truth and to expel Flynn from the school.
