Predictions as to what would win the Oscar for Best Film this year seemed to come down to one of two films ‘The Revenant’ or ‘Spotlight’.
With Dicaprio having, at last, won the Best Actor Oscar and the film’s director having won last year it left it open for ‘Spotlight’ as the only real contender amongst ‘Mad Max’, ‘The Martian’ and a few others although ‘Room’ was the only other film that could have given it a run for its money.
‘Spotlight’ was a deserved winner though with a worthy subject matter which still resonates today.
Winner of Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay at the 2016 Academy Awards® and winner of the BAFTA for Best Original Screenplay the film is a gripping true story behind the scandal that shook the world which presents us with outstanding performances from a group of exceptional leading cast members: Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber and Stanley Tucci.
‘Spotlight is a tense true-crime thriller based on an enthralling Pulitzer Prize-winning investigation. Led by Walter ‘Robby’ Robinson (Michael Keaton), the team of investigative journalists at The Boston Globe, known as ‘Spotlight’, pride themselves on their relentless dedication to exposing the truth of society’s ills and bringing the guilty to account.
Under the direction of a new editor Marty Baron (Liev Schreiber), the team uncover a scandal deep within the Catholic Church and the willful ignorance of those in power who have done nothing to stop it. Facing political opposition and resistance from the far-reaching influences of the Church, the reporters put together an explosive exposé revealing that truth is much darker than they could have ever imagined.
