In early 2002, the Boston Globe began publication of a series of stories about clergy sexual abuse of children in the Archdiocese of Boston. The investigation by the paper was exhaustive and resulted in a 2003 Pulitzer Prize for the paper and its “Spotlight” investigative team of reporters.

The story of the investigation forms the basis of the soon-to-be-released film titled “Spotlight,” to be shown in limited release in U.S. theaters beginning Nov. 6 and set for general release beginning Nov. 20.
