Hollywood has a terrible habit of overdramatizing true events, surpassing the „believability“ aspect of filmmaking. Fortunately enough, we have films like ‚Spotlight‘ (2015) to counter that. The film takes place in 2001, a time when the Boston Globe was working on a story to uncover the sexual abuses of young children that were being systematically covered by the Catholic Church. The storytelling and performances from Keaton, McAdams, Ruffalo, Schreiber and others are simply mesmerizing from start to finish. Its lack of dramatic music and dialogue really makes it unique and echoes the past journalistic films like ‚All the President’s Men‘ (1976). ‚Spotlight‘ (2015) is not only a great film but an important one. Further evidence how Journalism can change people’s lives.
