This dramatic recreation of the Boston Globe's investigation of child abuse within Boston's Catholic hierarchy is at once an unsettling but also inspiring motion picture. Unsettling because the tragic details of the case. But also inspiring because it champions inquiry and perseverance in the pursuit of justice over ignorance and persuasion to protect the guilty and the corrupt. Spotlight has a great story at its disposal but it would only be suitable for an extra long episode of 60 Minutes or a glorified TV movie without the strength of its powerhouse cast. They're all great in their roles. Spotlight was one of many great films that came out in 2015 but that does not negate its excellent acting and storytelling. As far as Best Picture winners go, it's a good choice.
