“Spotlight” Selected For Telluride Film Festival!

The 42nd Telluride Film Festival has announced this year’s line-up and it was announced that “Spotlight” is part of it’s main program. The festival runs from September 4-7 and for more information be sure to head over to the official website. The movie will have screenings two screenings on Saturday, September 5, and two screenings on Sunday, September 6, according to the official schedule. The Saturday 4:15PM will be followed by a Q&A Discussion followed by the screening. The official schedule mentions Tom McCarthy, Michael Keaton and Rachel McAdams will be there “in person” and we assume they will be present for the screening and Q&A panel.

In 2001, a new Boston Globe editor (Liev Schreiber) assigns a crack team of reporters (Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Brian d’Arcy James) to investigate Boston’s Catholic Archdiocese handling of a priest’s sexual misconduct case. What they uncover is, to say the least, shocking: a vast secret labyrinth of suffering victims; self-serving institutional hypocrisy from the Church; and weary complacence from city officials. Completing the amazing ensemble are Stanley Tucci, Billy Crudup (attorneys of differing moral hue), Jamey Sheridan and Len Cariou (priests defending the system). Writer-director Tom McCarthy (THE VISITOR, THE STATION AGENT) has crafted, with co-writer Josh Singer, a rich tale with wit and devastating compassion. Though we may know the story, SPOTLIGHT is filled with twists and surprises, making for drama that’s thrilling and yet grounded with substantial gravitas. –LG (U.S., 2015, 126m) In person: Tom McCarthy, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams
