Last Saturday we saw "Spotlight" at the Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville. The first showings offered had sold out, but we were lucky enough to get tickets for the 2:15 show, and we were glad we did.
While I didn't learn anything I didn't know, it was gratifying to see this material receive national exposure before a broader audience. It was also a well-deserved tribute to the integrity, fortitude and resourcefulness of investigative journalists.
Dominic Preziosi's post at dotCommonweal, "The Necessary Ordinariness of 'Spotlight'" presents his experience of the film and is followed by the usual dotCommonweal forum of lively opinions, most from Catholics and many from journalists.
