Spotlight

SPOTLIGHT tells the riveting true story of the Spotlight Team of Boston Globe reporters and editors that uncovered an unimaginable citywide conspiracy to cover up clergy child abuse. That investigative team included then-Globe editor Marty Baron (Schreiber) and Spotlight Team editor Walter “Robby” Robinson (Keaton). Reporters Michael Rezendes (Ruffalo), Sacha Pfeiffer (McAdams), and Matt Carroll (d’Arcy James) spent a year interviewing victims and reviewing thousands of pages of documents and discovered years of cover-up by Church leadership. Their reporting eventually led to the resignation of Cardinal Bernard Law, who had hidden years of serial abuse by other priests and opened the floodgates to other revelations of molestation and cover-ups around the world which still reverberate today.
