Tom McCarthy’s hu­man­ist dra­mas – The Sta­tion Agent, The Visi­tor and Win Win – put

most other Amer­i­can in­de­pen­dent ilms to shame

with tex­tured emo­tional land­scapes and terri ic cast

ing. None of that ex­plains The Cob­bler, one of my TIFF 2014 top picks that ended up be­ing a colos­sal mis ire. But I’m will­ing to be­lieve in McCarthy again as he drama

tizes the Bos­ton Globe’s in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the Catholic Church’s cover-up of mo­lesta­tion by Mas­sachusetts priests. Hav­ing Michael Keaton, Liev Schreiber, Mark Ru falo, Rachel McA­dams, John Slat­tery,

Stan­ley Tucci and Billy Crudup on board sug­gests a much-needed re­turn to form.
