    Default Boston Globe's exposure of Catholic Church abuse cover-up to be made into film.

    DreamWorks announced plans this week for a big film with a controversial topic. The studio will tackle the Catholic Church's child sexual abuse scandal in an upcoming film. DreamWorks president Holly Bario said
    "The Boston Globe's coverage of the Catholic priest scandal opened the door to a bigger story that had worldwide ramifications," "The story of how this team of editors and reporters came to uncover the truth will make a dramatic and compelling film, especially with the talents of our director Tom McCarthy and his co-screenwriter Josh Singer on board."

    That's mainstream stuff. It is hard to imagine a film like that being made even five years ago.

    The Catholic Church deserves every criticism it gets on that issue. The one concern I would have is that victims who have gone through horrific trauma might have their hurt increased if they feel exploited by Hollywood. For many it is extremely painful to talk about still and it takes time to get to a point of recovery. It has to be handled sensitively.
