First look: trailer for “Spotlight,” starring Michael Keaton, on the Boston sex abuse scandal

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 07/29/15


From Variety: 

The film from director/co-writer Tom McCarthy tells the true story behind the Boston Globe’s investigation into child abuse in the Catholic Church. The group of reporters won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service in 2003 after uncovering the local Boston Archdiocese’s massive cover-up of sexual abuse. “The West Wing” scribe Josh Singer co-wrote the film, which has already generated plenty of awards buzz. The Globe’s reporting eventually led to the resignation of Cardinal Bernard Law, who had hidden years of serial abuse by other priests, and yielded other revelations of molestation and cover-ups around the world. The movie also stars Rachel McAdams, Brian d’Arcy James, John Slattery, Liev Schreiber and Stanley Tucci.

The movie is scheduled for release in November. See the trailer below.
