Spotlight (Michael Keaton/Mark Ruffalo) - Trailer

Spotlight

SPOTLIGHT tells the astonishing true story of the Boston Globe’s Pulitzer Prize-winning “Spotlight” team of investigative journalists, who in 2002 shock the city and the world by exposing the Catholic Church’s systematic cover-up of widespread paedophilia perpetrated by more than 70 local priests.

When newly appointed editor Marty Baron (Liev Schreiber) takes charge of The Globe in the summer of 2001, he directs the Spotlight team to follow up on a column about a local priest accused of abusing dozens of young parishioners.

Aware that taking on the Catholic Church will have major ramifications, Spotlight editor Walter ‘Robby’ Robinson (Michael Keaton), reporters Sacha Pfeiffer (Rachel McAdams), Michael Rezendes (Mark Ruffalo) and researcher Matt Carroll (Brian D’Arcy James) begin delving deeper into the case.

As they confer with victims’ attorney Mitchell Garabedian (Stanley Tucci), interview survivors and pursue the release of sealed court records, it becomes clear that the church’s cover-up is far more wide-reaching than any of them ever imagined.

Spotlight is released in UK cinemas on January 29 2016.
