Spotlight: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

In 2001, senior editor Marty Baron (Liev Schereiber) asks the Boston Globe's investigative team Spotlight, to work a special report and get the truth about the alleged sexual abuse covered by the local Catholic Archdiocese. Led by their editor Walter Robinson (Michael Keaton), the whole Spotlight team (Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams and Brian d'Arcy James) tries to dig deeper and tries to fight against the church. Soon, they realize that the story is much bigger than they expected as a Cardinal is involved in covering up the abuse for years.  

Spotlight isn't a grandeur film, but it centers on an important story and shows the true power of journalism. It's all about the storytelling on how a group of investigative journalists attached each puzzle piece and solved a mystery that is covered for decades. This guys' stand up for the truth and held their ground facing a very powerful Catholic Church in Boston. Uncovering the abuses was already a shocker but connecting the dots leads them to a much larger scope. 

Director Tom McCarthy knows how to key in the details and made an exceptional use of his tremendous cast. Liev Schereiber, Mark Ruffalo, Micheal Keaton and Rachel McAdams all made their presence felt. They gave life to these people and showed the courage they made to uncover the truth. 

Overall, Spotlight is a great story about people who just uses pen and paper as a weapon to expose something that is buried along with hundred of victims seeking for justice. It might not be a movie for everyone, but it is an important journalist drama that can be appreciated by many.
