Viola Davis Tackles Fear, Shines In 'Doubt'

Tony Award-winning actress Viola Davis has managed to stay out of the Hollywood limelight, despite a consistent acting resume that includes roles in everything from TV shows like Law & Order to films like Antwone Fisher.

Now, a new movie could win her some well-deserved recognition. She plays a key role in the new film, Doubt, based on the Broadway play of the same name. It's a story about recriminations and allegations at an all-white Catholic school in the Bronx during the 1960s.
