OMG, I actually came out of the movie filled with so much emotion and basically in tears.
That was my Boston and I grew up there and I am Irish Catholic and went to all Catholic schools.
My family is all over Boston, Southie and the Burbs and Worcester.
And my sons as well. They went to all Catholic through College. They were altar servers.
Every single street, avenue, highway in that movie I have been on millions of times.
How absolutely DISGUSTING. These Priests. And the Church kicking it all to the curb BECAUSE they ARE the Catholic Church.
I grew up respecting all our Parish Priests as though they were GOD himself here on Earth.
I read The Boston Globe every single day. Sometimes the Herald but mostly the Globe.
I remember in 2002 when this hit The Globe.
But we did not realize what a horrible situation this all was UNTIL The Globe came out with it.
The true story of how the Boston Globe uncovered the massive scandal of child molestation and cover-up within the local Catholic Archdiocese, shaking the entire Catholic Church to its core.
Spotlight is a 'section' of The Boston Globe where a small group of journalists write articles which are investigative in nature and may take up to a year to publish.
