Three Boston Globe reporters who exposed – that is exactly the right word in this case – 200 Boston Archdiocese and 7,000 priests nationally for sexually abusing children talk about their experiences of being portrayed in the “Spotlight” movie by actors like Michael Keaton.
The real-life Globe journalists are reporters Sacha Pfeiffer and Michael Rezendes and editor Walter Robinson.
Keaton plays Robinson in the film, which will be released early next year.
Mark Ruffalo plays Michael Rezendes.
Rachel McAdams played Sacha Pfeiffer.
The lengths that the actors go to capture every nuance of the reporters is astounding. These folks don’t just show up for work on the set. They do their homework.To read the remarkable story, click on http://www.bostonglobe.com/arts/movies/2014/11/29/spotlightfilm-intro/d8Tp3MQ4Y0OQA3JZgABkeO/story.html
