Not Oscar worthy. Someone just trying to cash in on a hot topic.

Good actors,the fact thT it was a true story. An important topic, the fact it happened all over the world and its good it finally came out to the media.

Superficial, I'd almost say trash script which didn't add on iota of information or insight to the story and hampered an excellent cast (Keaton, Ruffalo, Schreiber, McAdams).

A very good movie a dark subject matter but very informative makes me sick that men of God we're getting away with something like that

This movie has absolutely nothing to do with Roman Catholicism. Nowhere in The Bible is such sinful behaviour encouraged. The film deals with the abuse of power by wicked men who use their positions of trust against innocent children. The film is "very there" - not great - too much talking and very little action. As has already been mentioned, there are others that treat this and similar issues in a much better way.

Meh...good enough but weak!!!

User review rating: 2 January 27, 2016

Excellent movie?? Are you serious?? Six people sitting around a table reading and discussing files?? That is hardly Oscar worthy - and the other four people in the theatre would agree with me! This film has very little action - other than continuous scenes in meetings - and virtually no character development. Other films have treated this very sensitive subject much more effectively.

Very revealing movie ! It is no wonder that young people, who have not been thoroughly brain washed, are leaving the Catholic church in droves. Older Catholics will still turn a blind eye and pretend that this stuff didn't exist.

An important story that must be told in hopes that it impacts change. Restores your faith in responsible journalism. A very well acted film with a terrific cast.

Our family really enjoyed this one.

This was the best movie I have seen this season. Acting was stellar, script was excellent and direction was flawless. A difficult topic to be sure, but a story that needed to be told and needs to be remembered by future generations. 5 stars, easy.

User review rating: 3 January 09, 2016

Obvious Oscar bait with the subject matter. A worthy story but trying too hard to be a serious issue drama that nobody can criticize (much like The Danish Girl). The acting was nothing outstanding or particularly challenging. Everybody was fine but very little range of emotion displayed. Important story to tell but not exactly a fun night out at the movies.

Fantastic - an attention grabber and holds one's focus and attention with great acting and a brilliant structure.

This movie was an excellent portrayal of the Pedophile priests serving God in Boston. Historically speaking, this is a much wider story. The true story SPOTLIGHT is a microcosm of what happened in First Nations for generations. Members of the clergy usually lived right in the communities. There is documented evidence by the churches themselves. Research into their archives bears witness to this. Priests who were caught molesting children were simply moved to another reserve where the abuse carried on. The nuns were also involved in the sexual exploitation of innocent children and youth. Priests were molesting little boys, impregnating young girls, and nuns were being impregnated by young boys. So much for celibacy and the honor of divinity. Sexual abuse by church officials was rampant in the residential schools according to a survivor.

Superbly written, directed and acted ! Definitely academy award worthy. There will be religious bigotry backlash so be prepared; but facts are facts.

Such an excellent movie! Great acting. Gripping story.

User review rating: 5 November 28, 2015

Riveting. Everyone should see this movie. Excellent performances by all. It's the story of how a group of journalists at the Boston Globe broke the story of the Catholic Church sex scandal and how those in power covered it up for decades. This movie is up there with Watergate, for those of you who remember that political coverup of illegal activities by those in power.

User review rating: 5 November 24, 2015

A very good movie --- not overly sensationalist but carefully written and directed. The result is clear picture of the extent of abuses committed by the Catholic clergy and its impact on all types of people.
