Winner of the Best Film Oscar this year, it is a gripping and powerful drama with an extraordinary cast that keeps us riveted with an authentic portrayal of investigative journalism.
"There are fine ensemble performances from McAdams, John Slattery, Paul Guilfoyle and Stanley Tucci, but Michael Keaton is Spotlight's secret weapon."
"Succeeds because it puts the audience alongside the reporters, allowing us to share the incredulity, disgust and frustration."
"This is an important film driven by a powerful, almost palpable, sense of moral urgency. It's also, not incidentally, an elegy for what newspapers used to be."
