Interesting and well done, with direction and acting. An interesting part of history as well as another film showing how good investigative reporting is the key for reliable reporting of the facts.
Bonus features talk to some of the real persons behind the specialized reporting team at the time, and they also discuss how fewer reporters are being retained by newspapers.
I have looked up the Spotlight on the Boston Globe newspaper website, and found it to be still current with contacts and their description as "The Globe's Spotlight Team consists of six reporters and other staffers who join the team from time to time for special projects."
It was four people at the time of the film, covering the period before and after 2001.
Recommended, along the lines of other good investigative films, such as the All the President's Men (1976), and more recently The Post.
