SPOTLIGHT tells 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. “Thomas McCarthy’s fast-paced, investigative biopic – itself operating like an efficient, muscular piece of journalism – depicts the work that the Globe's Spotlight team did while uncovering the sexual abuse scandal within the Boston Catholic Archdiocese. Save the occasional moment of levity, all scenes are focused specifically on the fact-gathering expedition, with character backdrops existing only in a peripheral capacity, should they align with the investigation. McCarthy, despite exploiting every scene for character complexities, is careful to stick to facts, and it's vital to the success of this film that he does so.” (Robert Bell)
