This latest Marvel Comic movie combines the spectacular superhero genre with the high school movie one.
This is the story of Ray Kroc, founder of the McDonald’s global fast food empire. Except, as it turns out, he wasn’t the real founder at all.
The news story that earned The Boston Globe the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service in 2003 is dramatised by some of Hollywood’s best in this film which was Academy Award-winning for Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay.
The subject sounds distasteful but the film is actually a true and well-made account of the sexual abuse of children by Catholic priests in Boston, brought to light in 2002 by a remarkable team of investigators working for ‘Spotlight’ at the Boston Globe. The disclosure didn’t just shock Boston but had a wider impact on the whole of America and indeed on the rest of the world.
