Doubt (15)

OSCAR nominations aplenty for the stars of this drama, which is adapted from the John Patrick Shanley play.

For Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams and Viola Davis are all up for gongs at the glittering Academy Awards, later this month.

Set in 1964 at a Catholic school in the Bronx, a charismatic priest named Father Flynn (Hoffman) is attempting to challenge the establishment's strict customs.

Sister Aloysius (Streep) is the iron-gloved principal who has long upheld these traditions, and who has an unshakeable belief in the power of fear and discipline.

When she suspects him of abusing a black student and confronts him, her quest for the truth threatens to tear the community apart.
