Movie Review: Spotlight

When I was 17, I had the opportunity to spend two weeks at Boston University for an investigative journalism intensive workshop. Although I spent most of the two weeks wishing I was at home, I did learn a lot, and it helped me to realize something very important about my future career: I hate investigative journalism.

I picked a story on food trucks. (This was 2012; food trucks were still new and exciting.) Basically, food trucks are health nightmares on wheels. They're insanely unsanitary and eating from them is a good way to get really sick. All in all, it was an interesting project but I still to this day can't eat out of food trucks. Then again, had I never researched the issue, I would never have known. And that's the beauty and necessity of investigative journalism.


Spotlight is everything that I wish my short-lived career as an investigative journalist had lead me too. It follows the investigative journalism unit of the Boston Globe as they work to prove of cover-up of sex abuse scandals by the Catholic Church.

If nothing else, this movie will make you go woah. The acting is spectacular, the directing is amazing, and the plot is unbelievable. 

Overall, I would definitely recommend this movie to a friend.
