Netflix has added an Academy Award-winning modern classic that you have to see

Carl Kinsella

Spotlight is not just an important film, but a very good one.

Netflix has added the 2015 drama film about The Boston Globe’s “Spotlight” investigative journalism team which exposed wide-ranging child sex abuse by Roman Catholic priests in Boston, Massachusetts.

The film, which boasts an all-star cast of Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Stanley Tucci and Billy Crudup, picked six nominations at the 2016 Academy Awards, winning Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay.

While there are plenty of decent movies on TV today, you could do a lot worse than setting a few hours aside to watch this masterpiece.

In case our word isn’t good enough for you, though, take the word of Rotten Tomatoes, who have blessed the movie with a 96% rating, based on 308 reviews.

Get on it.
