I found this movie a little hard to follow, as there were a lot of characters to keep up with. I understand the gist of the movie, crimes being covered up for 30+ years by Cardinal Law, but I kind of feel like the ending was uneventful. I mean, I know that this is based on true events and I'm sure that this is what happened in real life, but I just feel like it was a lot of work just for a newspaper article. I guess some people are just really passionate about their jobs and finding the truth, so I am thankful for that, but I would have rather seen all the priests getting handcuffed and sent to prison.
This is another one of those movies that show great controversy and I don't really want to get into the politics. I am a catholic and still, after seeing this movie, find it hard to believe that these things actually happened. However, I am also a scientist, and with the facts that the members of Spotlight found leading us to the truth lead me to believe. In fact I find it hard to believe that there are actually people in this world, not just priests in a story like this, that are just completely horrible. But all I have to do is turn on the news... It makes me sad.
I thought all the actors in this movie were just amazing, and unlike The Danish Girl, it was able to keep my attention for what seemed like forever (it was just over 2 hours). Spotlight is another movie that I'm just going to say is okay since I probably wouldn't watch it again. .
OH! And one more thing... they had a pizza maker in their break room. Can we get one of those too? Kay Thanks.
