Dogma and Doubt — NPR Interview

NPR’s Renee Montagne interviews the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play Doubt, A Parable, now adapted for film.  The film follows the story of Sister Aloysius (Meryl Streep) — an old-school, hard-as-nails, no-nonsense nun — who suspects Father Flynn (Phillip Seymour Hoffman) is sexually abusing the school’s first and only black student.

Ella Taylor, on the other hand, is unimpressed, and has some excellent points.
