Last weekend’s dinner and a movie: “Spotlight”

Forgot to mention on here that last Saturday my best buddy and I went out for dinner and then to the theater to watch the film “Spotlight,” about the Boston Globe newspaper journalists who brought to light in the early 2000s the major scandal of Catholic priests’ molestation of youths in their city over several decades and the church hierachy’s essential cover-up of these facts.

Thanks to their journalistic integrity and willingness to stand up to a very influential local institution, showcasing this story opened up the gates for journalists in other cities to follow suit and find out what other crimes of this nature were being kept hidden in their communities as well.

The trailer:

My buddy wanted to see it, and I’m glad we did. Would recommend this film to others.
