Academy Award Winner for Best Picture SPOTLIGHT tells the riveting true story of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Boston Globe investigation that would rock the city and cause a crisis in one of the world’s oldest and most trusted institutions. When the newspaper’s tenacious “Spotlight” team of reporters delve into allegations of abuse in the Catholic Church, their year-long investigation uncovers a decades-long cover-up at the highest levels of Boston’s religious, legal, and government establishment, touching off a wave of revelations around the world. Directed by Academy Award®-nominee*** Tom McCarthy, SPOTLIGHT is a tense investigative thriller, tracing the steps to one of the biggest crime stories in modern times.
Absolutely terrific from start to finish. Builds the story at a good pace, giving you time to pause and absorb the sheer scale of the abuse and cover up. Perfectly cast, expertly scripted and terrifically acted. One of the best movies I've seen for a very long time.
Enjoyed the film start to finish .
Captivated start to finish. A compelling storyline and interesting characters.
I really enjoyed this film, it has an amazing cast and keeps you glued from start to finish. Very powerful stuff. A must watch. Awesome.
What a great film this, loved it. Definitely worth a watch
Boring, over rated, and that's one of the worst movies I've ever seen.
Excellent in every respect. Made me wish I had become a journalist.
Horrible subject matter handled brilliantly, I'm not one for emotions generally but I was definitely upset towards the end as the gravity of it all took hold...
I enjoyed every minute of this movie ... It reminds you of the ethics of journalism.. Their passion touched me big time ..
Quite simply a faultless film covering a very important subject that is still being unearthed today.
Everybody should watch this film, brilliant acting and a superb story line that brings to light the horrific crimes that went on and still go on within the Catholic Church! This film proves the power film can have on real sensitive issues that need to be brought to the publics attention!
Thoroughly enjoyed this film. Excellent acting and thoughtfully produced. It deals with a difficult subject in an engaging and sensitive manner.
Well worth a watch.
A reminder why journalism plays such a vital role as the public watchdog uncovering unspoken truths. You'll be horrified at what they discover.
A fantastic film with excellent actors. It tackles a sensitive subject in a very good way and will make you cry, laugh and probably want to punch some of the characters in the face. A must-see. Well deserved Best Picture!
This is a great film. It will also make you angry - but don’t let that put you off. Superb performances from the whole cast and a deserved BAFTA for the screenplay make for a riveting watch. Highly recommended - though you may want to punch a priest after watching it….
