Based on the unveiling of child molestation inside Catholic Archdiocese, by the small Newspaper - 'The Boston Globe'. Been doing the rounds lately due to premiering at Toronto Film Festival and it's been getting some brilliant reviews. Seems like a performance heavy film and not one of them (judging by the trailer) looks to be a weak link.

Looks very tense and gripping!

Definitely my pick out of what appear to be the three Best Picture front-runners (this, The Revenant and The Big Short). Interesting and gripping throughout. Mark Ruffalo was the stand-out if I were to single anyone out so I'd say he deserves his nom, Rachel McAdams..not to discredit her work, but that choice seems a bit more odd.

I liked (for want of a better word given the subject matter) how it went around different people to give an insight, talking to different victims and even having a scene with a priest giving his view etc.

Like Jahq says, this is definitely my favourite of the three front-runners but I'm a bit worried it won't win/feels like the hype is fading.

It was so hard to watch at times and the numbers of victims just kept on increasing throughout the film which was heartbreaking, I love way they did so many interviews without shying away from what happened was really tough to watch. After the list at the end, the whole audience just sat in stunned silence at how common it was and the way the Church just disguised it and relocated the priests.

Acting was excellent throughout too, Mark Ruffalo might be my pick now for supporting actor, the short 'it could have been any of us' argument was excellently acted, shame he probably won't win after two great performances in a row after this and Foxcatcher.
