SPOTLIGHT is available on Blu-rayTM, DVD and Download from 23rd May 2016 and is available to pre-order now from Amazon and iTunes.
SPOTLIGHT is the heart-stoppingly tense true-crime thriller based on the enthralling Pulitzer Prize-winning investigation. Led by Walter ‘Robby’ Robinson (Michael Keaton), the team of investigative journalists at The Boston Globe, known as ‘Spotlight’, pride themselves on their relentless dedication to exposing the truth of society’s ills and bringing the guilty to account.
Under the direction of a new editor Marty Baron (Liev Schreiber), the team uncover a scandal deep within the Catholic Church and the willful ignorance of those in power who have done nothing to stop it. Facing political opposition and resistance from the far-reaching influences of the Church, the reporters put together an explosive exposé revealing that truth is much darker than they could have ever imagined.
