Best Movies of 2015
Experience for yourself the collective success of both the writer-director and all-star cast of the Academy Award-winning film, Spotlight.
Take an unbelievable true-life story, add in an incredibly talented all-star cast and a razor-sharp writer-director, and the resulting movie is "Spotlight," arguably the best film of 2015. Tom McCarthy helms this brilliant look at the disturbing story that four investigative journalists uncovered in 2001, bringing to light the sexual child abuse perpetrated by Catholic priests throughout the Boston diocese. The journalists (who made up the Boston Globe newspaper's special-section "Spotlight" team), played by Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams and Brian d'Arcy James, peel back the church cover-ups and get to the headline-making truth — that priests in the Boston area had been abusing children for decades, with the full knowledge of the archbishop of the diocese. It's a thrilling drama of the finest order and an unsettling look at how powerful institutions protect their own at all costs.
