#JustWatched Spotlight (Tom McCarthy, 2015)

Great cast, great writing, great film. Loved that the story was the most important thing in the entire film. It was never dramatic for drama’s sake. It had a consistent feel to it. Beautifully shot with a slightly faded grade and lots of soft colours helped handle a sensitive topic well. The score was a great accompaniment and never intrusive.

The whole film feels like celebration of hardworking and dedicated journalists serving their community by delivering the truth. It was a real eye-opener to the power of the church, how utterly terrifying that is and how important integral journalism is.
