Spotlight

Spotlight ★★★★½

"If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a village to abuse them."
- Mitchell Garabedian

Tom McCarthy's true-to-life story is based on a team of investigative journalist and their mission to unravel a controversial allegation about the cover-up of sexual abuse within the conservative and local borders of the Catholic Church. Spotlight gave us a glimpse of how these fantastic journalists brought justice to a critical case kept buried by the Church. Complete with a stellar cast, well-detailed dissection of essential parts of the screenplay, and an impressive execution. The performances from Mark Ruffalo and Michael Keaton were just breathtaking. And Rachel McAdams??? She went from Regina George to Intellectually Gorge in a snap!!

P.S. I was heavily struck on the final scene. I forgot to count, but there were indeed cases of this in the Philippines. That's disgusting from a religious kiddo here!!
