Still shot from the movie: 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.
