UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Feb. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The riveting true story of the dedicated investigative team that blew the lid off a monumental cover up, Spotlight is now available on Digital HD, and comes to Blu-raycombo pack, DVD and On Demand on February 23, 2016, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Directed by Academy Award® nominee Tom McCarthy (Up, The Station Agent), this taut drama goes behind the scenes of one of the most notorious scandals in recent history as a small group of intrepid journalists take on a seemingly unbeatable opponent — and win. "A tour de force" (Variety), Spotlight on Blu-rayand DVD features an insightful "making-of" documentary and revealing conversations with the filmmakers.

"A masterpiece" according to Brian Truitt, USA Today, Spotlight is one of the most important and critically acclaimed films of the year, nominated for six Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay. Additionally, the film was nominated for three Golden Globes®, two SAG Awards, eight Critics Choice Awards and a total of nine Best Picture nominations.

Michael Keaton (Birdman), Mark Ruffalo (Foxcatcher) in his Academy Award® nominated role and Rachel McAdams (Southpaw) in her Academy Award® nominated role lead a critically acclaimed cast in this gripping story of the Pulitzer Prize-winning investigation that uncovered a scandal that rocked one of the world's oldest and most trusted institutions. Delving into allegations of child abuse within the local Catholic Archdiocese, a tenacious team of Boston Globe reporters exposes a decades-long cover-up that reaches the highest levels of Boston's religious, legal, and government establishments.
