Movies about the Media: Spotlight

IT’S been on the cinema circuit for a little while, now – but you may still be able to catch it…

Receiving a huge number of four and five-star reviews – including here (The Telegraph), here (Rotten Tomatoes), here (The Guardian) and here (The Herald) – Spotlight is about a real-life, award-winning investigation (into child sexual abuse by local clergy) by the Boston Globe newspaper in the USA.

It was released in 2015 and its director is Tom McCarthy. The cast includes Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams and Mark Ruffalo.

And also among those in the UK who have reviewed it is The Scotsman’s Aidan Smith, here.
