Directed by Tom McCarthy. With Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber, and John Slattery. The true story of how the Boston Globe uncovered the massive scandal of child molestation and cover-up within the local Catholic Archdiocese, shaking the entire Catholic Church to its core.
Interesting to see this again following Cardinal Law’s recent death. It’s still incredibly painful to watch. I don’t remember who I would have identified with the first time I saw this in the theater, but I certainly identify with Mike Rezendes’ rage in the end.
The stupidity of humans and how they manage to treat each other always astounds me; particularly here where it is the church that is the instigator.
