Spotlight is heavy shit
5 second plot: In 2001 a team of investigative reporters from the Boston Globe uncovers of story of child abuse by Catholic priests on a huge scale. And the cover-up that comes along with it on an ever bigger scale.
5 second review: This is not only a story about horrible child abuse, but it's also about investigative journalism. It runs like a thriller, these guys (and girl) can't believe what they're uncovering. It's a story that needs to be told and it's told perfectly. One thing that really pops out are the performances. Everyone is amazing.
