I’m guessing that they won’t be showing this movie down at the local parish anytime soon (assuming it hasn’t gone bankrupt).
This really is a horrible story. For a church to cover up literally thousands of cases of abuse over a span of decades is horrifying in every possible way.
They did a good job of trying to create an action movie out of it. It’s a little difficult since the action consisted of reporters interviewing people and getting copies of court documents; and the villain, although in fact is quite villainous, is a fairly opaque organization that actually hasn’t overtly tortured anyone for at least a couple of hundred years.
Mark Ruffalo was a little over the top, as he often is, in my opinion, but fairly good jobs otherwise.
It told a compelling story on a vitally important subject that needs to stay in everyone’s mind.
