Spotlight Movie Review: A tight and gripping investigative journalism flick that questions blind faith!
Spotlight is not just a movie about the sexual abuse, but about an issue we too have been facing in the country- faith in an institution. A movie that speaks about what journalism is supposed to be- an eye opener.

Star Cast: Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Live Schreiber, John Slattery and Brian d’Arcy James.

Director: Tom McCarthy

Producer: Blye Pagon Faust, Steve Golin, Nicole Rocklin and Michael Sugar.

Claps for: Direction, Editing, Performances and Screenplay

Slaps for: Nothing

What’s New: Presenting actors not as actors or a messiah who would bring a change- but just as a bunch of reporters doing their job.

Popcorn Refill: Interval

Story: In 2001, editor Marty Baron of The Boston Globe assigns a team of journalists to investigate allegations against John Geoghan, an unfrocked priest accused of molesting more than 80 boys. Led by editor Walter "Robby" Robinson, reporters Michael Rezendes, Matt Carroll and Sacha Pfeiffer interview victims and try to unseal sensitive documents. The reporters make it their mission to provide proof of a cover-up of sexual abuse within the Roman Catholic Church.

Performances: As said before, none of the actors have got a larger than life role. Neither does it have any layers to it. It is just restricted to investigating and being involved in the case. Be it Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, John Slattery or Brian d’Arcy James- all the actors have given natural performances.

Direction: Despite being a known case, what makes this movie a gripping one is its presentation- fast paced, crisp and to-the-point minus any drama. And the credit for that goes to director Tom McCarthy and his team.

Combo-On-Offer: Crime Drama

Verdict: We give the movie THUNDEROUS CLAPS for being a tight and gripping investigative journalism flick.
