'Boston Globe' journalists talk about taking on the Catholic Church
What was it really like for the Boston Globe‘s Spotlight team to tackle the Catholic Church over allegations of child abuse? The truth can be found in a featurette included on the DVD and Blu-ray of Spotlight (both out Feb. 23 ), director Tom McCarthy’s Oscar-nominated film about the paper’s 2002 Pulitzer Prize-winning expose that shocked the world.
Titled “Uncovering the Truth: A Spotlight Team Roundtable,” the short film finds newpaper editor Marty Baron (played in the film by Liev Schreiber) and reporter Mike Rezendes (portrayed by Mark Ruffalo), among others, reminiscing about their daring investigation.
Spotlight will also be available on Digital HD. You can see an exclusive clip from that featurette, above.
