Spotlight - Rotten Tomatoes

Holiday Movie Calendar 2015


Movies about newspapers aren't exactly trendy at the moment. Then again, when you've got a cast that includes Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Mark Ruffalo, Liev Schreiber, and Stanley Tucci, you can make cinematic magic out of pretty much any story -- and Spotlight, the latest effort from director/co-writer Tom McCarthy (The Station Agent), tells one whopper of a fact-based tale, dramatizing the Pulitzter-winning efforts of the Boston Globe's investigative team to uncover the sexual abuse scandal in the city's Catholic archdiocese. It's a delicate subject for a film, but Spotlight's sterling pedigree -- as well as its early critical returns -- are very encouraging.
