Genre: Biography, Drama, History
This is a biographical film about the real events from the tem Spotlight who reported on the abuse hidden by the Catholic Church. This is one amazing film 😀 ! The cast is stunning; Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber and Brian d’Archy James, who created believable characters 😀 . I was captivated the entire way through the film which it is quite long but feels like it needs to be. The narrative itself should be a horror film with the events that happened to the victims but it works in a way that you are with Spotlight wanting them to succeed instead. It creates an authentic movie making you feel and understand the victims without overly depressing the audience. By all accounts this film about reporters and lawyers should be dull but personally I was quite gripped and was captivated 🙂 . There are plenty of great scenes in this film but I loved the ending which had a happy ending (ish) and ends so abruptly that you are left wanting more 🙂 ! A fantastic film that I seriously recommend! Enjoy 🙂
I give this film 5 Stars out of 5!
