Spotlight is a 2015 drama that is directed by Thomas McCarthy, and written by Josh Singer and McCarthy. The movie was produced by open Road Films and shown in the 72nd annual Venice International Film Festival as well as the Telluride Film Festival and the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. The film was initially released to the public on November 6th of 2015. Starring Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton and Rachael McAdams, the movie follows the Boston Globe's Spotlight Team. The Spotlight team is well known for being the oldest newspaper investigating unit in America, and one of the most reputable. The film centers around the investigation of John Geoghan, a Roman Catholic priest who was accused of molesting and sexually assaulting more than 80 young men during his time with the church. The film's plot is mainly constructed using a number of the stories from the original investigating team, and interviews that were conducted by reporters Sacha Pfeiffer and Michael Rezendes throughout the course of the investigation despite the constant roadblocks and cover ups by the Boston Archdiocese. Despite its unfavorable view of the clergy, many church leaders have given the film high ratings for its honesty and the fact that the film has forced the church to deal with problems that otherwise might have continued to stay locked behind closed doors.
