Directed by Tom McCarthy and with an all-star cast that includes Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Mark Ruffalo, Liev Schreiber and Stanley Tucci, SPOTLIGHT (2015) was recognized in the year of its release with an AFI AWARD, naming it among the most outstanding motion pictures of year. According to the official rationale, “SPOTLIGHT puts the power of journalism on the front page. With measure befitting the investigative method, Tom McCarthy presents The Boston Globe’s inquiry into cardinal sins without tabloid sensationalism — creating tension around the team’s dauntless pursuit of truth. Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton and Rachel McAdams are the dogged journalists behind the story, standing for an age of integrity in the news media when no one was above question, including those asking the questions.”
Another true tale of investigative perseverance and courage, SHE SAID is featured as part of this year’s AFI FEST programming – screening tonight at the TCL Chinese Theatre as a red carpet premiere. Visit AFI FEST to see the whole festival schedule for the week ahead!
