Academy Awards winner, Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay.
Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams and Michael Keaton star in this true story about a team of Boston Globe reporters who uncovered a massive scandal of child abuse and cover-ups within the local Catholic Church.
An urgent procedural concerning one of the most painful scandals in recent memory, the latest from writer-director Tom McCarthy (The Station Agent, The Visitor) tells the true story of how the Boston Globe revealed the Catholic Church's cover-up of widespread child molestation within the Massachusetts priesthood.
Featuring compelling performances from many of today's finest actors, and propelled by Howard Shore's sombre score, this is easily McCarthy's most ambitious production. Yet Spotlight is very much in keeping with the gifted filmmaker's previous works. It tells a tale of tragedy befalling ordinary people, and of the fragile but real comfort yielded when hard truths are brought into the light.
