SPOTLIGHT (Movie Review)

Spotlight small
**** out of ****

My review of Spotlight (click here), at, about the 2001 Boston Globe investigation into the Catholic Church sex abuse scandal.

Winner of two Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay (2015).

Spotlight is ranked #4 on my Top Ten List for 2015.

An excerpt from my review:

Spotlight is a sober, sensitive look at some very hard truths, one that is concerned exclusively with the facts, not in making a commentary on their source.”
