Spotlight ★★★★½

I honestly think Mark Ruffalo's "It's time Robby!..." monologue is some of the best acting in recent film history. And what makes it so great is everything happening in the movie leading up. None of the actors are trying to steal any moments. The directing keeps the characters believably procedural, while still being compelling. It's a group of professionals doing the little details to make a change, with their heads down and emotions bottled up, until the moment Ruffalo lets it explode. And that scene gives me chills.
