Movie to see: Spotlight

After a delicious dinner at GG’s with Adrienne – and sadly, for me, too much red wine, Saturday night called for a mellow, alcohol-free evening.

“Nitehawk?” Katie asked.

“Yes!” I replied.

Nitehawk is a wonderful theater in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Excellent food and cocktails in addition to interesting movies. It’s my favorite place to see a movie these days.

We went to see Spotlight, described by IMDB as “the true story of how the Boston Globe uncovered the massive scandal of child molestation and cover-up within the local Catholic Archdiocese, shaking the entire Catholic Church to its core.”

While the subject matter is heavy, heartbreaking stuff, the film finds lighter moments by illustrating the camaraderie among journalists. And the cast, including Rachel McAdams, Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo and dreamy Liev Schreiber, is excellent – I’ll be shocked if the film doesn’t get a lot of love during award season.
