Description

In a front-page editorial, the Vatican owned newspaper Osservatore Romano has praised this year's Oscar winning Best Picture 'Spotlight'. The film, featuring an all-star cast including Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams and Mark Ruffalo, follows the team of investigative journalists from the Boston Globe who revealed the church's cover up of widespread sexual abuse by priests. The paper commended the movie for bringing attention to the shock and pain that faithful churchgoers felt when the crisis was revealed. But the picture is about more than just bashing the church.
