Watched this last night. Score is bang on. Well made, decent enough performances, competent direction.
But it lacked the passion and power of something like Spotlight, even though the source material has, on paper, equal potential to move us. So something is missing. I agree the structure felt formulaic and predicatable, but also it lacked the rawness of Spotlight as well as the suspenseful and often surprising discoveries that saw Spotlight's tempo lurch and ricochet like a pea in a tin.
enjoyed this,i thought it was a very good watch,although i am thoroughly enjoying michael keatons late revival after being quiet for a while although hes the lead in this i felt stanley tucci steals the show,,never seemed to drag really,i would recommend it
