Still, it's impossible not to at least sigh that Viola Davis' heartbreakingly tragic Mrs. Miller in "Doubt" didn't quite make it to the stage. There is a lifetime in just a single scene thanks to Davis, in her face unspeakable anguish, her son's future in the hands of everyone else, it seems, but hers. She sees his fragile psyche facing damage on so many fronts -- the priest, his father, the world in which he must try to survive his coming-of-age issues. Her resignation is fierce and unforgettable.
