Spotlight breaks the story in exclusive first poster
HOLLYWOOD---“Spotlight,” starring Michael Keaton and Mark Ruffalo as reporters working on The Boston Globe’s Pulitzer Prize-winning investigation of pedophile Roman Catholic priests, deals with just a fraction of sexual predation in the church, its director says. The film for the most part focuses on how the Globe’s team tracked down and confronted some of the offending priests. Team members interviewed victims who were still distraught and disturbed decades later, and established that the Roman Catholic Church had a policy of paying victims to remain silent, and not rock the boat by making their allegations public.
