Still shot from the movie: Doubt.

Doubt

Guilty or not, Father Flynn (Philip Seymour Hoffman) finds his vocation and reputation in jeopardy when doubt is cast on the appropriate nature of his relationship with one of his students (Joseph Foster) in a church-run school. The accusations come from an impressionable young nun (Amy Adams) and Sister Aloysius (Meryl Streep), the institution's strict principal who has never had much sympathy for Father Flynn's more lax approach to education and religion.

Why Is Doubt Rated PG-13?


Although a priest is accused of inappropriately interacting with a student, no on-screen activity is seen other than a hug in a crowded hallway. Both adults and early teens are seen smoking. Adults drink with dinner and a young boy is accused of drinking the wine used for religious purposes. Adults discuss the physical abuse and sexual inclinations of children. The brief use of profanities is included along with some frightening moments for children.
