Description

"Spotlight" is a 2015 drama film that tells the true story of the Boston Globe's investigative journalism team, known as "Spotlight," and their work to uncover the systemic child abuse by Catholic priests in Boston. Led by editor Walter Robinson, the team faces resistance and intimidation from the Catholic Church and the wider community as they delve deeper into the story. As they uncover more evidence and testimonies, they realize the extent of the cover-up and the complicity of the Church hierarchy.

The film was directed by Tom McCarthy and stars Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, and Rachel McAdams as members of the Spotlight team. The film received critical acclaim for its powerful performances, sensitive handling of a difficult subject matter, and its portrayal of the importance of investigative journalism in holding institutions accountable.

"Spotlight" won several awards, including Best Picture at the Academy Awards, and its impact was felt far beyond the film industry. The investigation by the real-life Spotlight team led to a widespread reform of the Catholic Church and helped to spark a global conversation about institutional abuse and cover-ups. "Spotlight" is a powerful and important film that serves as a reminder of the vital role that journalism plays in uncovering the truth and holding those in power accountable.

Hyde Park on Hudson

2012
Drama
In the year of 1939, the King and Queen of United Kingdom, George VI and Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon are visiting New York to seek the help from America in a forthcoming War with Germany. The success of their voyage is totally dependent on negotiation with the President of the United States, Franklin Delano Roosevelt who has invited the Royals to his residence - Hyde Park on Hudson. Meanwhile, FDR himself is experiencing hard times with domestic policy and low ratings of trust. The situation is even getting worse when Margaret Suckley, a Roosevelt's mistress and distant cousin joins him alongside with his wife and children to ensure the pleasant stay of royal couple during the weekend. This crucial parley is going to turn out to be the fateful pivot point both of the world history and FDR and Margaret relationships. Few people know ins and outs of this historical meeting and Roger Michell's movie, Hyde Park on Hudson, unfolds the truth about it. It showcases lots of funny moments (just imagine facial expression of Royals, when Margaret announces hot dogs as main dish of the lunch), misapprehensions at the edge of fouls and lots of other objectionable situations FDR and Margaret masterly get out from. The right chemistry between the perfectly selected actors and actress make this movie definitely delicious and easy to watch. Franklin D. Roosevelt is portrayed by Bill Murray. Laura Linney plays Margaret Suckley while Olivia Williams plays Eleanor Roosevelt, FRD's wife. The Royal couple is played by Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth and Samuel West as King George VI.
