Around the World in 83 Days – Plane Movies – Spotlight


Another film I wish I’d seen in the cinema instead of on a plane. It was amazingly powerful and deeply distrubing. Based on the true events of the 2002 investigation by the Globe.

Under the direction of new editor looking to make a name for himself, the Boston Globe’s elite investigative team, known as Spotlight, is tasked with validating child-abuse claims against the Catholic Church. The team of journalists begin to uncover a massive scandal involving sexual abuse and the willful ignorance perpetrated by the Church in Boston at a scale even they coudln’t comprehend. Facing political opposition and resistance brought about by the powerful influence of the Church, the reporters put together a story exposing the corruption over decades hidden by the Catholic Church.
