Does Mark Ruffalo ONLY act in films about uncovering large conspiracies? This one’s about systemic child abuse by the Catholic church, along with the institutional coverup orchestrated by its hierarchy – Australians would no doubt be familiar with Cardinal George Pell.  Well-told story, but sickening topic matter.  Totally infuriating that it ever went on, and that it still hasn’t been corrected – see Geoffrey Robertson’s “The Case of the Pope: Vatican Accountability for Human Rights Abuses” for more detail.
