Spotlight shines

Yes, I know all the attention lately has been on that other movie. And, yes, I will go see Star Wars, episode whatever, the Force Awakens. It's not only wildly popular but getting good reviews. I'm looking forward to it. But I'm in no hurry.

I'm here to recommend another really good movie: Spotlight. This is no action adventure. There is no violence or sex, incredibly. It's just the best movie about journalistic integrity since, well, I think it's better than "All the President's Men." I can't think of a better one.

And it's not just a gripping story about investigative journalism, a sadly dying branch on the tree of contemporary media. It deals with one of the more compelling and tragic issues of our time, the abuse of children by priests and the cover up that enabled it to happen.

If you don't catch it soon it will be gone from theaters. But add it to your Netflix queue!
