It is based on a series of stories by the real Spotlight Team that earned The Globe the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service.

    Thank you and good night Prestigious

    I watched it for the first time on a flight and was surprised by how emotional it got me. I wanted to find more fault with it, but it was great.

    This was really good I thought. I know a lot of people on AP said this was Oscar bait, but it was a really engrossing watch.

    It's chaos; be kind.

    My favorite movie from last year. I'm waiting for a good time to rewatch it on Netflix
