Michael Keaton (Birdman) and, in their Oscar-nominated roles, Mark Ruffalo (Foxcatcher) and Rachel McAdams (Southpaw), lead an acclaimed cast in the gripping story of the Pulitzer Prize-winning investigation that uncovered a scandal that rocked one of the world’s oldest and most trusted institutions. Delving into allegations of child abuse within the local Catholic Archdiocese, a tenacious team of Boston Globe reporters exposes a decades-long cover-up that reaches the highest levels of Boston’s religious, legal, and government establishments.

Directed by Tom McCarthy (Win Win), Spotlight has been nominated for six Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay. Additionally, the film was nominated for three Golden Globes, two SAG Awards, eight Critics Choice Awards and a total of nine Best Picture nominations.
