The long, resistant road to reformation: the Church today and “Spotlight” / America magazine
On Saturday I saw “Spotlight,” the powerful new Tom McCarthy film about the Boston Globe’s work to break the Boston sexual abuse story in 2002 … It’s a surprisingly restrained, quietly devastating drama that well captures the unfolding horror of that moment. To my mind “Spotlight” is also a film that pushes the church to consider where it is today, and where it needs to go.” (boldface added)
