The movie “Spotlight” promises a true-to-life adaptation of how the Catholic Church responds to crimes involving their priests. Boston Globe newspaper, headed by its editor Marty Baron portrayed by Liev Schreiber, investigates the allegation on kids being molested by priests in six parishes in the last 30 years.
The church did not do anything upon learning the crimes. But reporters and investigators will not tolerate their abuses. Spotlight, the name of the team in charge with the investigation led by Keaton, learns there is more to child molestation activities of the priests.
“I know there’s things you cannot tell me. I also know there’s a story here, and I think everybody will hear about it,” says the first line heard in the trailer.
As Boston priests made a strong cover up of the crime, reporters from Boston Globe become more relentless.
“We need to focus on the institution. Show me it came from the top down,” said Schreiber.
“Spotlight” is based on a true story and reporters were awarded in 2003 with the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service for uncovering the massive scandal and how the local diocese attempted to conceal the crime. The film, which is an official entry to 2015 Toronto Film Festival and 2015 Venice Film Festival, is set to hit selected theaters on Nov. 6, 2015 and will have a wide opening on Nov. 20.
