||The real events in 2001
||Spotlight is a Boston Globe investigation team, who are directed by their new editor to look into cases of child abuse by priests. Their discoveries shake the Catholic church around the world.
||This is a drama about journalists, not about children or priests. And the script keeps you on track and is not too distressing.
||Of course we know how it all turned out so one aspect of the drama is denied to the writers. But nevertheless it is gripping stuff. I only looked at my watch once.
