Leonardo DiCaprio certainly undergoes a tremendous physical and emotional ordeal in The Revenant, Alejandro G. Inarritu’s follow-up to his highly praised Birdman.
Spotlight, from director Tom McCarthy is a compelling account of how, in 2001, the “Spotlight” team of reporters from the Boston Globe uncovered numerous reports of child abuse by Boston’s Catholic priests, as well as the system-wide cover-up of said abuse by shuttling these clergymen from parish to parish, after a designated period of “sick leave.”

Black Mass, from director Scott Cooper, is a hard-hitting crime drama and a welcome return to form for Johnny Depp, as he emerges from a self-induced acting coma (nothing else can explain Mordecai) to create a memorable portrait of career criminal and South Boston hero figure James “Whitey” Bulger.
