Doubt: A

Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman y Amy Adams, originally uploaded by MyCine.

Scott and I saw Doubt ( yesterday (bypassing the huge lines for Frost/Nixon). Streep and Hoffman were great. At times, Streep's performance seemed more like The Devil Wears A Habit; however, her overzealous, overly suspicious, and overly confident character was even sympathetic.

As a movie, Doubt isn't spectacular. Since the movie was based on a play, much of the movie's most compelling scenes were simple two-person exchanges. I can definitely see how this would have been a great play to see in person.
