But the coverage of the 2001 Boston Catholic Church sex scandal was so essential, it won a Pullitzer for the Boston Globe Spotlight team, a super undercover investigative unit.
The true story is told in Spotlight, and it’s an amazingly crafted film. It’s the new All the President’s Men. No big courtroom scenes, no private lives of the reporters – just a fascinating tale executed beautifully.
This is maybe the best movie of the year. A true story, in which the actual events actually happened. It’s inspiring and depressing, and gripping, and a film that really needed to be made. I can’t recommend it enough.
