Spotlight – New Release Review

Spotlight is an excellent and truly compelling drama… When the Boston Globe’s new editor, Marty Baron (Liev Schreiber), arrives, he’s got the odds stacked against him: he’s from out of town, he’s Jewish, he’s unmarried, he doesn’t like baseball, and he insists the paper’s investigative team, the “Spotlight”, do a piece on the Catholic Church’s […]
