Synopsis: Under the direction of new editor Marty Baron (Liev Schreiber), the Boston Globe's elite investigative team, known as Spotlight, is tasked with delving into decades' worth of child-abuse claims against the Catholic Church. Led by Walter "Robby" Robinson (Michael Keaton), the journalists begin to uncover a massive scandal involving sexual abuse and the willful ignorance perpetrated by the Church within the city of Boston. Facing political opposition and resistance from the far-reaching influence of the Church, the reporters put together an explosive exposé on a corrupt system. Directed by Tom McCarthy and based on the true events of the 2002 investigation by the Globe, the star-studded Spotlight also features Rachel McAdams, Mark Ruffalo, John Slattery, Billy Crudup, and Stanley Tucci. ~ Daniel Gelb, Rovi
