Synopsis [I]t’s a soaring ode to minutiae that makes riveting cinema out of journalism’s least dramatic moments.Like ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN, it’s a muckraker movie that celebrates the power of the press by actually showing journalists doing their job, pen and notebook in hand.Its screenplay is self-effacing, its accomplished direction is intentionally low key, and it encourages its fistful of top actors to blend into an eloquent ensemble.4 stars out of 4 -- There's no higher compliment to pay this steadily riveting, quietly devastating take on investigative journalism than to say SPOTLIGHT gets it right.SPOTLIGHT is a great newspaper movie of the old-school model....A pure celebration of journalists doing what they do best.SPOTLIGHT is a gripping detective story and a superlative newsroom drama, a solid procedural that tries to confront evil without sensationalism.SPOTLIGHT is deeply serious, as well as exceptionally dramatic, a rare conjunction of qualities that makes it the best movie of 2015.4 stars out of 5 -- [SPOTLIGHT] is the real thing, a supremely talented cast who subsume ego to tell a story of a group achievement.Tom McCarthy’s sobering drama demonstrates disciplined filmmaking built upon scrupulous storytelling, clear-eyed direction and unshowy performances...Under the direction of new editor Marty Baron (Liev Schreiber), the Boston Globe's elite investigative team, known as Spotlight, is tasked with delving into decades' worth of child-abuse claims against the Catholic Church. Led by Walter Robby Robinson (Michael Keaton), the journalists begin to uncover a massive scandal involving sexual abuse and the willful ignorance perpetrated by the Church within the city of Boston. Facing political opposition and resistance from the far-reaching influence of the Church, the reporters put together an explosive exposé on a corrupt system. Directed by Tom McCarthy and based on the true events of the 2002 investigation by the Globe, the star-studded SPOTLIGHT also features Rachel McAdams, Mark Ruffalo, John Slattery, Billy Crudup, and Stanley Tucci.
