Ahfest Film Fest: Doubt
October 3 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Film admission is free. Auditorium doors close at 6:00 pm.
Directed by John Patrick Shanley. “What do you do when you’re not sure?” So asks Father Flynn (Philip Seymour Hoffman), a progressive priest at the St. Nicholas Church School in the Bronx, in his sermon. It’s 1964, and things are changing, to the chagrin of rigid principal Sister Aloysius (Meryl Streep). However, when an accusation is leveled against the Father, Sister Aloysius realizes that the only way to get justice is to create it herself. As for the truth of the matter, Father Flynn says, “Doubt can be a bond as powerful and sustaining as certainty.” Shanley’s characters balance on the thin line between truth and consequences. Doubt: A Parable will raise questions and answer none, leaving the audience to grapple with their uncertainties. (https://stageagent.com/shows/play/1121/doubt-a-parable) Also stars Amy Adams.
