A nominee for Oscars Best Picture, 'Spotlight', will be having its local premiere this February 10 in time for the heat of the Awards season buzz. 

Starring a star-studded cast that includes Michael Keaton, Rachael McAdams, Mark Ruffalo, Liev Schreiber, Stanley Tucci and Billy Crudup, the film tells the riveting true story of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Boston Globe investigation that would rock the city and cause a crisis in one of the world’s oldest and most trusted institutions. 

When the newspaper’s tenacious “Spotlight” team of reporters delves into allegations of abuse in the Catholic Church, their year-long investigation uncovers a decades-long cover-up at the highest levels of Boston's religious, legal, and government establishment, touching off a wave of revelations around the world.

Director Tom McCarthy helms the project, as well as writing the screenplay alongside Josh Singer. The director explained his urge to take on the project since he was raised Catholic and a Boston resident himself. 

"‘I want to dig deeper’. I mean beyond that, I lived in Boston, I was raised Catholic, I come from an Irish-American family and there’s a lot of things I felt like I could connect to the world through and I was excited to kind of explore that, and I just thought the issue was terribly relevant on a lot of levels. Some of this maybe developed over time as we started to really dig into the story but there were just so many avenues by which to approach and tell this story that it was just exciting, it was rich material," McCarthy said in an interview.
