"If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a village to abuse one." Spotlight…follows The Boston Globe's "Spotlight" team, the oldest continuously operating newspaper investigative journalist unit in the United States, and its investigation into cases of widespread and systemic child sex abuse in the Boston area by numerous Roman Catholic priests. It is based on a series of stories by the "Spotlight" team that earned The Globe the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. The film features an ensemble cast…[and] won the Academy Award for Best Picture along with Best Original Screenplay from six nominations in total.”


"Unless you go public, the darkness will never see the light of day." This movie is “based on the experiences of Kathryn Bolkovac, a Nebraska cop who served as a peacekeeper in post-war Bosnia and outed the U.N. for covering up a sex scandal.” Bolkovac, played by Rachel Weisz, “finds herself confronting a 'dangerous reality of corruption, cover-up and intrigue amid a world of private contractors and multinational diplomatic double-talk'. A fictionalized account inspired by actual events, the movie deals with issues both real and abhorrent: human trafficking, violence against women and cross-border organized crime. United Nations peacekeepers and staff are portrayed as turning a blind-eye to, or worse, actually being complicit in these crimes.”
