Spotlight tells the story of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Boston Globe investigation that rocked the city and caused a crisis in one of the world's oldest and most trusted institutions. When the newspaper's tenacious "Spotlight" team of reporters delved into allegations of abuse in the Catholic Church, their year-long investigation uncovered a decades-long cover-up at the highest levels of Boston's religious, legal, and government establishment, touching off a wave of revelations around the world. Critics have hailed Spotlight as "A solvent narrative exercise that grows as time goes by like the importance of the subject and its delightful cast" and as "a professional and moral guide on the exercise of the journalistic work." Go watch Spotlight for an unflinching and honest take on the investigation that led to one of the biggest scandals that the Catholic Church has endured in recent times.
