"If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a village to abuse them. That's the truth of it."
It is amazing to see how much is buried under the rug in the world. Spotlight is a movie based on a true story about a special division in the Boston Newspaper called by the same name, who stumble upon a story that just shakes their very core.
A great ensemble, I mean we got Micheal Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber, John Slattery and more. And all of them were at the top of their game. Great performances by everyone. And the movie took a very subdued approach to it. You see these people just doing their job, they are not portrayed as big heroes or anything, and as the case gets more deep, you see subtle expression of disgust/shock/worry on their faces, with increasing intensity. It just felt very realistic.
The movie did felt slow at times. The pacing was almost constant but I guess the nature of the movie made some parts feel slow. Not boring though, just a bit slow.
I didn't really know what the movie was about and that kinda made it more interesting as the movie kept on going, so it is better I don't talk about it. All I'll say is that the more it went on, the more shocked I was that it all actually happened.
