SHOWCASE CINEMAS PETERBOROUGH, FROM FRIDAY

This biographical-drama is reportedly in a three-horse race with The Revenant and The Big Short for the Oscar Best Film award – after receiving tremendous reviews the other side of The Pond.

Oscar-nominees Mark Ruffalo and Rachel McAdams star in this true story of how the Boston Globe uncovered the massive scandal of child molestation and cover-up within the local Catholic church – with their year long investigations shaking the American city’s entire religious, legal and governmental establishments to the core.

Michael Keaton, Liev Schreiber, Stanley Tucci and Mad Men’s John Slattery round off an impressive cast.
