Spotlight – Review


This movie tells the true story of how the Boston Globe uncovered the massive scandal of child molestation, pushing the Catholic Church to its core.

In my point of view, this flick is a huge sucess that is noticed by the impressive characters played by tremendous actors, having names like Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Liev Schreiber, and many more. And the way they show how they managed to work on their story and what they needed to to make the article it is just so realistic.

So the Boston scandal of 2001 / 2002 is portrayed very well, a true heartful event sensed by this reporters, even though the press just cares about the publication not what they published, this case was different they still wanted to publish the story but they showed caring about the happening.

However, sometimes the plot seemed so boring and dragged on with just lifeless moments. I even fell asleep and that is very bad, now don’t get me wrong, the content is strong but its manifestation to the audience is weak.

Concluding, this film is a great representation of the unfortunate episode of this scandal showing exactly how it was to publish an article like that without nobody knowing it. A must watch and an Oscar worthy !

Nominated for : Best Picture, Best Actor In A Supporting Role ( Mark Ruffalo ), Best Actress In A Supporting Role ( Rachel McAdams ), Best Directing ( Thomas McCarthy ), Best Film Editing and Best Writing ( original screenplay ).

I rate : 7,0 / 10
