The film "Spotlight" has received six Oscar nominations, including one for Best Picture of the Year. It tells the true story of the Boston Globe's Pulitzer Prize winning "Spotlight" team of investigative journalists, who in 2002 exposed the Catholic Church's systematic cover-up of widespread pedophilia by more than 70 priests in the city of Boston. VOA's Penelope Poulou explains that the power of “Spotlight” lies in its message.
