THE 33

Let me get this clear: The famous 2010 Chilean mining accident and rescue was about Chileans, right? So why are Antonio Banderas (Spanish), Lou Diamond Phillips (Filipino- American), Juliette Binoche (French), Rodrigo Santoro (Brazilian) and Bob Gunton (American) fronting this drama?

I kept looking for the one bona fide Chilean actress listed among the cast on Internet Movie Database - Cote de Pablo (previously from TV's NCIS) - and I couldn't find her. Instead, I see a tanned Binoche playing a leader of the miners' relatives, looking anguished and angry with Santoro, the heart-throb minster of mining.

I can hear the women in the audience going: "Mine my heart, minister." Oh, relax. I can joke because everybody made it out alive.

This looks like All The President's Men: The Almighty Version. Back in the early 2000s, the Boston Globe newspaper's Spotlight investigative team broke the Roman Catholic Church sex abuse scandal in America about priests molesting young boys.

You would not want the cast assembled here as those dogged strike-force journos - Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber, Mad Men's John Slattery - coming after you.

This isn't Watergate. This is Floodgate because they look like a well coordinated tsunami of truth and righteousness descending upon the unholy priests and smarmy lawyers covering up for them.
