Earlier today the 72nd Venice International Film Festival unveiled it’s official selection for this year’s film festival and Spotlight was confirmed as part of their line-up, as told by Mark during Giffoni last week. The film will screen out of competition.
Co-written by Josh Singer (“The West Wing”) and McCarthy, “Spotlight” stars Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams and Michael Keaton in a true story about a team of Boston Globe reporters who uncovered a massive scandal of child abuse and cover-ups within the local Catholic Church.
A trailer was released and you can watch it below:
The festival runs from September 2-12.
