The extraordinary true story of how investigative journalists uncovered an abuse scandal and cover-up. It's the summer of 2001 and the Boston Globe has a new editor, Marty Baron (Liev Schreiber), who's curious to know why abusive Catholic Priests have gone unpunished. So he sets the paper's investigative Spotlight team onto the story. This is headed by Walter Robinson (Michael Keaton) and includes tenacious reporters Michael Rezendes (Mark Ruffalo) and Sacha Pfeiffer (Rachel McAdams). Over the course of six months, they painstakingly piece together the horrifying truth about a systematic cover-up of child sex abuse. It's a fearless investigation that goes on to win a Pulitzer Prize. Widely compared to the Oscar-winning classic All the President's Men, The Station Agent director Thomas McCarthy's richly detailed, emotionally involving drama boasts outstanding performances from its superb cast, who paint a compelling portrait of investigative journalism at its finest.
