Author’s note: This review contains spoilers for Spotlight.
The 2015 docudrama Spotlight tells the mostly true story of the Boston Globe investigative journalism team who revealed in 2002 that high-ranking officials in the Catholic Church had been knowingly protecting child-abusing priests for decades. Tightly written and powerfully acted, the film highlights the tremendous power of objective journalism and the inspiring heroism of the few journalists who remain committed to it. . . .
