"I know there's a story here, and I think everybody will hear about it."
The Boston Globe was ready to investigate the Catholic Church in its own city, and now Hollywood is, too. Rachel McAdams, Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton and more play reporters at the famous newspaper in the forthcoming film, Spotlight, and are ready to do whatever it takes to put the "spotlight" on a corrupt system.
Liev Schreiber, who plays Marty Baron, editor of the Boston Globe, learns "the Boston priests molested kids in six different parishes over the past 30 years. The Church found out about it and did nothing."
Keaton's team, known as Spotlight, is then put in charge of investigating the molestations but quickly learn there is a lot more to it than they ever expected. Based on a true story, the movie examines how the Church tried to cover up the crimes taking place in the journalists' backyard.
