About the Movie

Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, and Rachel McAdams lead a critically acclaimed cast in this gripping true story about the Pulitzer Prize-winning investigation that uncovered a scandal that rocked one of the world’s oldest and most trusted institutions. Delving into allegations of child abuse within the local Catholic Archdiocese, a tenacious team of Boston Globe reporters exposes a decades-long cover-up that reaches the highest levels of Boston’s religious, legal, and government establishment. “Brilliantly acted and flawlessly directed” (New York Post ) Spotlight is a powerful and riveting drama the critics are calling “the All the President’s Men of our time” (Los Angeles Times ).

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Spotlight manages the seemingly impossible task of wooing journalists with authenticity while still elevating reporters to hero status, as they battle a formidable and corrupt institution with righteous determination. – Zach Schonfeld, Newsweek, Feb 28, 2018

Fresh: Ruffalo gets top billing in the movie, and he brings some wonderfully lived-in behavioral details to his performance -- the quick, terrier-like movements of the head and the bitten-off sentences. – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, Feb 26, 2017

Fresh: Forensically written and directed with restraint, it's a film of huge social importance -- never sensationalistic, always spot on. – James Mottram, South China Morning Post, Apr 6, 2016

Fresh: Succeeds because it puts the audience alongside the reporters, allowing us to share the incredulity, disgust and frustration. – Matt Neal, ABC Radio (Australia), Aug 15, 2017
