In 2001, Father Geoghan, a Roman Catholic priest, is accused of molesting several children. The new editor of the Boston Globe assigns the Spotlight team, who specialise in writing expansive investigative pieces, to explore the claims that the Boston Archdiocese covered up the abuse for years. This excellent drama offers no-nonsense storytelling at its best. The twists of this real-life story are so horrific and riveting that there is no need for Hollywood hyperbole or flashy performances. An Academy Award winner for best picture and best original screenplay by Tom McCarthy and Josh Singer. The Spotlight team’s work earned them a Pulitzer Prize.
