Featurette: Doubt

The Times has just posted this interesting behind-the-scenes featurette about the newly released Doubt, starring Meryl Streep, Amy Adams, Viola Davis, and Phillip Seymour Hoffman. The featurette, "Translating Doubt" narrated by writer and director John Patrick Shanley, discusses the man's choices in recasting the tale for the screen and in choosing an active color palette, still true in shape, for the backgrounds of the story's origins, in order to effectuate the kind of popping of people as observed in post-Renaissance Dutch still-lives - a keenly intriguing concept for all that it carries with it. Let's hope the film runs with that idea.
