Tonight may be your last chance to see the Best Picture Winner,
Spotlight
from last night's Academy Awards Ceremony, on the big screen for a long time.
 
Spotlight tells the riveting true story of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Boston Globe investigation that would rock the city and cause a crisis in one of the world’s oldest and most trusted institutions. When the newspaper’s tenacious “Spotlight” team of reporters delve into allegations of abuse in the Catholic Church, their year-long investigation uncovers a decades-long cover-up at the highest levels of Boston's religious, legal, and government establishment, touching off a wave of revelations around the world.
 
Director: Thomas McCarthy
 
Starring: John Slattery, Live Schreiber, Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, and Stanley Tucci                          
 

What the critics are saying:
 
New Orleans Times-Picayune
Mike Scott
 
With Spotlight, we get a reminder of the vital importance of an independent, professional press to any community.
 
Miami Herald
Rene Rodriguez
 
Spotlight is simply a great story exceedingly well told, through characters whose fingers are perpetually stained with ink.
 
Time Out London
Dave Calhoun
 
It’s a more subtle, damning film for implicating the media – as much as the church, the courts, the legal profession and other Boston institutions – in the systematic, wider cultural cover-up it describes.
 
Washington Post
Ann Hornaday
 
For all of its modesty and dedication to process, Spotlight winds up being a startlingly emotional experience, and not just for filmgoers with intimate knowledge of the culture it depicts.
