‘Doubt’ Movie Summary
It’s 1964, St. Nicholas in the Bronx. A charismatic priest, Father Flynn, tries to upend the school’s strict customs. However, Sister Aloysius Beauvier, the iron-gloved Principal, fiercely guards those traditions as she believes in the power of fear-based discipline. As the winds of political change sweep through the community, the school accepts its first black student, Donald Miller. When Sister James, a hopeful innocent, shares with Sister Aloysius her guilt-inducing suspicion that Father Flynn is paying too much personal attention to Donald, Sister Aloysius sets off on a personal crusade to unearth the truth and to expunge Flynn from the school. Now, without a shred of evidence besides her moral certainty, Sister Aloysius locks into a battle of wills with Father Flynn which threatens to tear apart the community with irrevocable consequences.
