Shining a Spotlight on "Spotlight"
March 10, 2016
Earlier this month, "Spotlight"—the film based on the real-life team of Boston Globe investigative reporters who exposed patterns of sexual abuse by priests within the Catholic Church—won the Oscar for Best Picture.
Reporter Michael Rezendes and lawyer Mitchell Garabedian are two of the real-life 'characters' depicted in the film (by actors Mark Ruffalo and Stanley Tucci, respectively.) Both stopped by WGBH's studios to check in with Jim Braude and Margery Eagan about how their lives have changed since the film's release and how their work to bring sexual abuse to light continues.
To hear from Rezendes and Garabedian, tune in to Boston Public Radio above. See the trailer for 'Spotlight' below.
