Movie: Spotlight

Set in Boston in 2001, this film explores the exposure by the Boston Globe of the widescale abuse of children by Catholic clergy, and the part of Cardinal Law in covering it up.

I enjoyed this much more than ‘Truth‘, which was a similar movie.  At the end of the film there are two screens of cities where similar cover-ups occurred, and there was palpable curiosity to see whether Melbourne would be included (it was).  I came out feeling proud that I still subscribe to two hard-copy newspapers and one digital one.

A good solid 4.
