This was a very shocking and well made film. It is about the scandal involving a cover-up of Catholic priests molesting children in the Boston area. I was surprised with the delicate nature of the film’s script and how well it was handled. It had a very solid ensemble cast which helped make the film moving and horrific in parts.
I am glad that a film like this won Best Picture at the Academy Awards as it had a very important message (even if I was rooting for ‘The Revenant’).

A documentary film would show the real faces of those offenders to shame them. That’s the reason I desperately wanted it to be a documentary, then I would have definitely given a maximum mark. There’s no complaint about this movie, but adaptation means fakes acting, fake settings and awards goes to non real achievers. Anyway, this movie kind looked a semi documentary and liked the way it was made.
The movie exposed a very important scandal. If something is open for a debate in the US means, the rest of the world would follow the same route. That’s where this theme was inspired by. It all begins with a group of journalists from the Boston Globe with their new editor instruct them to research on sexual abuse of children by priests. So their lead only gets bigger and puts them to recover more evidence in order to publish. How they come up with the story that shake up not only the nation, but the entire world is the remaining.
A collection of bunch fine performances. There’s no lead actors in this. Everyone is in the supporting roles. Out of 6, it got nominated both male and female in the category of supporting role for the Academy Awards. I am very disappointed, Mark Ruffalo’s performance in ‘Infinitely Polar Bear’ deserved another nominee. Anyway, this 15 year old story still looks a hot topic. It was a great comeback for the director after critics assaulted him with their words for his previous film ‘The Cobbler’ only to show their rage on Sandler. It is a must-must see. Beware, is is not your weekend entertainer, but based on the real.
Flawless. Best Film Since 2000; Top 25 All-Time
Tom McCarthy’s ‘Spotlight’ portrays the Boston Globe’s investigative articles on the Catholic Church’s cover-up of pedophile abuse by a significant percentage of its priests in the Boston area.
The movie wastes no time in it’s 2 hours and 9 minutes with on-the-edge-of-your-seat pacing. Every interaction is meaningful, every character believable, as layer after layer of the Catholic churches systemic cover-up is unfolded. It is arguably the best newspaper movie ever produced.
But the underlying relationships of the “Spotlight” investigative team that thrives as a proxy family is the element that makes this movie so appealing.
Idealic respect shared between the characters and the professional bond that the diverse personalities have for each other is laid out by McCarthy over the course of the movie. Like close siblings whose love and common bond allow for overlooking each others idiosyncrasies and grow stronger under duress, the characters navigate the religious, social, community, political and legal challenges of bringing such an impacting story to press.
‘Spotlight’ is nearly flawless in execution. Every facet (writing, casting, acting, direction, cinematography, and editing), mixes together to yield 2015’s Best Picture, and resides at the very top of my list of best films since 2000, and ONLY film to ever make my “Top 100 Greatest Films of All Time” in its first year of release.

2015 Awards include: Academy Awards for Best Picture and Original Screenplay (out of 6 total Oscar nominations); Critic’s Choice Awards for Best Picture, Original Screenplay, and Best Acting Ensemble; SAG Award for Outstanding Cast/Ensemble.
Gross Sales/Theatre Attendance:
Distributed/opened in November, 2015 primarily through “Art Movie” houses, and in a blockbuster year that included Stars Wars, 007, and Jurassic franchise films, Spotlight barely cracked the top 100 domestically In 2015.
Since 2015, however, its rental/pay-for-view and at-large streaming numbers have done quite well, with a 300% increase in gross revenue via both positive word of mouth testimonials and critics’ praises, making the film financially relevant.
‘Spotlight’ continues to return profits to it’s investors, and gives evidence that great films are in high demand by audiences, can succeed financially, and make excellent investments for the movie industry at large.
Wonderful drama about the importance of investigative journalism
Everything about this movie is outstanding — the performances, the way the true events are handled, the cinematography. In this day of digital news, this movie makes us stand back and realize what we may lose in the way of investigative journalism as we slowly kill off print media.
The lengths the directors go to to achieve a sense of authenticity is remarkable. We are there in Boston in 2001-2002. We get to know enough about each character to make him or her real, but not enough to create side dramas. The focus remains the child abuse scandal in the archdiocese in Boston. That reflects the conflict the characters face and deal with when events make them rethink the focus of their article.
The movie is riveting, though we know the outcome.
