John Patrick Shanley's Pulitzer Prize-winning play Doubt was adapted into a 2008 film starring Meryl Streep and Amy Adams as the Catholic school nuns who begin to question Father Flynn's (Philip Seymour Hoffman) relationship with Donald Miller, the only black student at the Bronx Catholic school. Here is the film's trailer:
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
