Becky and I went to see Doubt last night at the Kerasotes theater in Castle Rock, CO. The Yahoo movie website at Doubt describes the movie as follows.
“It’s 1964, St. Nicholas in the Bronx. A vibrant, charismatic priest, Father Flynn, is trying to upend the school’s strict customs, which have long been fiercely guarded by Sister Aloysius Beauvier, the iron-gloved Principal who believes in the power of fear and discipline…”
Doubt is a movie we had great expectations for and it started out pretty good. It was actually pretty interesting for a while and then it got really slow. The acting is great in this film and that’s probably why so many people liked it, but the story was boring with a terrible ending.
We are actually surprised how great of reviews this movie has received. Some of you may like it for the acting and if you went to a Catholic school you may relate to some of the characters. I am one of the few people I know who actually got thrown out of a Catholic school in ninth grade back in Minnesota for arguing with a Priest. My parents and I were politely asked to find a different school to attend, so I could totally relate to the characters. Needless to say, I thought I would like this flick more than I did.
The ending is really terrible. Sister Aloysius, who is the main character played by Meryl Streep, sits down on a bench and say’s “I have doubts” to the other Sister who is in the film and that’s pretty much the end of the movie. No major climax, just a question on if she did the right thing and it was all over. I found it to be a complete waste of time, as much as I liked the acting and parts of the story. Becky thought it might make a good rental.
