Sometimes it's easy to forget that we spend most of our time stumbling around the dark. Suddenly, a light gets turned on and there's a fair share of blame to go around. I can't speak to what happened before I arrived, but all of you have done some very good reporting here. Reporting that I believe is going to have an immediate and considerable impact on our readers. For me, this kind of story is why we do this.

Compelling account of a true event and shocking revelations about the Catholic Church. It is important, of course, to remember that abuse happens in all corners of the world, and even in your street. Whilst the film is important, it should not be assumed that every Catholic Priest is an abuser - as in all cases - teachers, neighbours etc. there are good people in the majority. The film highlights the injustice of the Catholic church in covering up the abuse and despite the knowledge prevalent amongst the public, it is hoped that there is now more honesty in such institutions. Sadly, of course, the film is still relevant.

For a film with such an emotive and challenging subject matter, this is such a low-key and underplayed film. The filmmakers seem to recognize that details of how the Catholic Church dealt with both the perpetrators and victims of child sexual abuse speak for themselves and instead they have used thi More

Considering the very controversial and sickening nature of this story and how it can be sensitively portrayed everything about this film is outstanding and highly impressive. From the performances of the leading ensemble cast to the supporting actors it is clear the entire team of the ‘Spotlight†More
