Vail Symposium's free screening of 'Doubt' to be followed by local religious leader panel discussion
The Vail Symposium's Film & Speaking Locally series continues tonight at 6 at Colorado Mountain College in Edwards with a free screening of "Doubt".
The film will be followed at 7:30 with a panel discussion featuring Rabbi Debra Rappaport, Father Brooks Keith and Dr. Joah Bornstein.
The setting of this 2008 film adaptation of John Patrick Shanley's Pulitzer Prize winning fictional stage play "Doubt: A Parable," is a Catholic school in the Bronx in 1964 and follows a popular priest's ambiguous relationship with a troubled 12-year-old black student.
When the school's principal suspects the priest is spending too much time with the boy, she locks into a battle of wills with him, which threatens to tear apart the community with irrevocable consequences.
Written and directed by Shanley and produced by Scott Rudin, the film (2008, 104 minutes, rated PG-13) stars Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams and Viola Davis.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with local religious leaders and mental health professionals, including Rabbi Debra Rappaport, Father Brooks Keith, and Dr. Joan Bornstein, moderated by Rohn Robbins.
The event is sponsored by United Way of Eagle River Valley and the Vilar Performing Arts Center. Go to vailsymposium.org for more information.
