    ★★★★

    Spotlight chronicles The Boston Globe's Pulitzer price winning investigation of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church, a problem that starts revealing its true width as soon as the journalist's dig deeper into their investigation.

Peter Weir is the Aussie director who went on to direct Dead Poets Society and The Truman Show and he has based the story on the notoriously famed Joan Lindsay novel by the same name, which together with this film spawned an ongoing urban legend and cemented Hanging Rock's position…
