Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Viola Davis (for the 1 long-ish scene she appeared in), and Amy Adams (just slightly below the prior 3) put in amazing performances. The movie itself was a little slow...you could tell it was based off a play in that it was exploring a deep question/theme - like Raisin in the Sun, or Death of a Salesman - rather than relying on plot highs and lows and faster cinematography (like most movies) to draw you in. There was a lot to talk about afterwards, so I recommend seeing it with someone else to discuss...what a character meant when he/she said something, etc. The movie is basically all dialogue, so post-viewing analysis is more important than most films. I thought it was very interesting with great acting, just know that it's not a typical movie before you go.

THE STORY IS VERY GOOD AND TRUE MANY TIMES AS IT TURNS OUT. I AM SURE STREEP WILL WIN THE OSCAR BECAUSE SHE'S SO GOOD IN THIS PART.....IT IS SCARY. HER DOUBT IS NOT THAT HE DID IT. HER DOUBT IS CONCERNING HER FAITH IN GOD.

Not impressed. Mildly entertaining, similar to a mass marketed paperback romance novel- seems a little dirty but might get interesting. When on a overnight red-eye and cannot sleep, this story will entertain you better than the snores around you... maybe. Seems like a "johnny-come-lately" attempt to relive the church scandals from years ago. All rather stale, nothing new. One redeeming quality, it is a short movie!
