Spotlight's Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo and director Tom McCarthy: 'More victims are coming forward because of this film'
With aid from six Oscar nominations, Spotlight has established itself as one of this year's must-see films.
The film tells the biographical story of four journalists from The Boston Globe's 'Spotlight' team - the oldest newspaper investigative unit in the US - who uncovered a scandal of child molestation within the local Catholic Church in 2001.
Speaking about Spotlight, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Rezendes said, "This movie gives our work a second life with a much bigger, broader audience.
"There was no way I ever believed this could be cinematic."
This claim was backed up by Boston Globe's editor-at-large Walter Robinson who stated that the film has affected the public consciousness "in a way that the printed word could never have."
"More victims are coming forward because of this film," Robinson explained.
"Just the other day in Paris, we had a press conference and a reporter talked to us afterward and said 'Oh, by the way when I was six-years-old, I was abused by a priest."
