Spotlight is the new drama based on a true story, starring Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton and Rachel McAdams as a reporter for the Boston Globe who uncovers a massive child abuse and cover-up scandal involving the Catholic Church.
The film, which received six Oscar nominations and three BAFTA nominations, opens in theaters on Friday, January 29.
But is it worth seeing? Here’s everything you need to know about Kollig (15).
Deputy Editor-in-Chief Ben Bradlee Jr. (John Slattery) heads the Boston Globe newsroom and has direct responsibility for the Spotlight team led by Walter “Robby” Robinson (Michael Keaton).
Down in the basement, Robby and his associates Michael Rezendes (Mark Ruffalo), Sacha Pfeiffer (Rachel McAdams) and Matt Carroll (Brian d’Arcy James) invest thousands of hours of work to solve clues.
Her work is valuable but expensive, and new Boston Globe editor Marty Baron (Liev Schreiber) makes it clear he’s ready to make some tough cuts.
The team becomes embroiled in a potentially explosive story.
Attorney Mitchell Garabedian (Stanley Tucci) claims to have documents proving that Cardinal Bernard Law (Len Cariou) knew about abuse within the diocese and did nothing.
Marty authorizes Robby to continue the story quietly before he is personally called to meet the Cardinal.
The battle lines have been drawn and Robby implores his writers to keep their emotions in check as they face terrifying tales of shattered innocence.

Is it worth a watch?
In early 2002, the Boston Globe’s Spotlight research team published a series of articles on the sexual abuse of minors in the Archdiocese of Boston.
Coverage of the scandal sent shockwaves through the Catholic Church, and the paper won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service Journalism.
Thomas McCarthy’s impeccably crafted drama pays tribute to the tight-knit team of tenacious editors and reporters who tirelessly pursued the ugly truth and poured their sweat and tears into the revelations.
The casting of Spotlight is exemplary, with Ruffalo bringing unbridled outrage to the film’s standout scene that undoubtedly earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor.
The twists and turns and star-studded cast make this a must-see film with a compelling plot worthy of the award nomination.
