The true story of how the Boston Globe uncovered the massive scandal of child molestation and cover-up within the local Catholic Archdiocese, shaking the entire Catholic Church to its core.
Spotlight was a really great movie with a really great cast. It really makes me miss good journalism these days which lacks with the onslaught of digital life.
These people that put hard work into uncovering the truth behind the Catholic child molestation rumors that have become a walking joke to a lot of people these days. Its sad because its actually a really serious issue.
Our world is bogged down by the abuse of power in all forms, government, police, military, schools, and churches. Reality is a harsh mistress to take on because society would rather turn their head and look the other way than admit that there's a serious problem all around the world going on right under their noses.
Spotlight looks at all these issues and handles them delicately without the church admitting its fault or responsibility to do anything about the fact that it remains an issue still today.
