On BBC 2 tonight at 9

Drama about the Boston Globe's unearthing of a massive paedophilia scandal within the Massachusetts Catholic Archidiocese.

The Boston Globe’s in-depth investigation team, known as Spotlight, are looking for a focus for their next project. At the suggestion of new editor Marty Baron (Liev Schreiber) they embark on an investigation into the Catholic Church’s child abuse scandals and reveal the horrifying scope of the cover-up.

A grown-up film about serious people that mercifully escapes any awards-grabbing platitudes, this is more thrilling than most action movies.

The word “ensemble” is often abused to refer to any film with more than one big-name star. Usually, there’s still a lead, some glory-hound who demands attention. Spotlight, however, is the real thing, a supremely talented cast who subsume ego to tell a story of a group achievement. And despite that lack of conspicuous melodrama, this film communicates its high stakes so effectively that even photocopying seems unbearably tense.

Won the Oscar for Best Picture...can't recommend it highly enough.

I agree Becky, it was excellent.
