'Spotlight' depicts the work done by a specialist team in the Boston Globe newspaper to research and report on what the hierarchy of the Catholic Church in their city knew about abuse of children by their clergy and how they dealt with what they knew.

The film does not sensationalise events, reporting what transpired in measured tones. The focus is not the abuse but questions of who knew and what was or was not done in the face of it.

A fine film.
