Spotlight movie review: Mark Ruffalo and Michael Keaton give their best
A newsroom drama, Spotlight is a true story. It is a gritty, realistic portrayal of how The Boston Globe newspaper investigated and exposed the sordid child abuse in the Catholic Church of Boston. An investigation that led to the resignation of the cardinal.
The detailed look at how charges of molestation and rape were built up against 87 priests of the Catholic Church of Boston in 2001 is riveting.
Mark Ruffalo and Michael Keaton as investigative journalists of the Spotlight team of Boston Globe gave great performances.
The movie gives the viewers a look into the lives of the journalists as they uncover the scandal and also gives an insight into dark side of the child molestation cases in the Catholic Church that shocked the world.
