The Breakdown: The true story of the Boston Globe reporters who uncovered and exposed the scandal of child molestation by Catholic priests and the cover-up engineered by the Catholic Church.
I have been dying to see this movie for a while but never got myself to the theater to see it. So I rented it and I was not disappointed that I did. I grew up catholic so was almost afraid of what I was learn from watching this movie and I was in fact disgusted. I knew about the scandal but to see it brought to the screen with such power was emotionally draining. I was brought to tears by the powerful performances and the way the story was put together. This film truly did deserve the Oscar and if you haven't seen it yet I don't know what you are waiting for.
