Doubt its original...

So I got some new Netflixes to watch last week. I watched Mall Cop and Doubt. Here's my reviews.

Lets start with Mall Cop. It was funny but not memorable. "hey Rick Thorne and Mike Vallely" that was about it. Also have to mention the lack of advertised funny Indian character from the previews. He's in it like twice.

Now onto Doubt. here's the description off IMBD:
"Set in 1964, Doubt centers on a nun who confronts a priest after suspecting him of abusing a black student. He denies the charges, and much of the play's quick-fire dialogue tackles themes of religion, morality, and authority."

that's fine and all but there was a movie, that coincidentally I caught on Turner Classic Movies just last weekend called The Children's Hour (1961) with Audrey Hepburn and a saucy young Shirley MacLaine.
IMDB: "Best friends are headmistresses at a successful private school for girls...a spiteful, angry child tells her grandmother [she saw the headmistresses doing "unnatural" things with each other at night] and the Grandma believes her...The word quickly spreads and within days Karen and Martha are faced with empty classrooms. Joe is fired from his job for siding with the teachers. The teachers sue for slander in a case that makes national headlines.

It's not exact but its similar enough. an unfounded accusation that turns people's lives upside down. See also; Atonement.

Why cant anyone write a damn original story?
