The award-winning team behind the Boston Globe’s intensive investigation team members Matt Carroll, Sacha Pfeiffer, Michael Rezendes and Walter V. Robinson attended the 2015 ONA conference in Los Angeles this past weekend to give a keynote on “Spotlight” and their investigation. The panel/keynote was moderated by screenplay writer Josh Singer. Movie clips where shown during the keynote and we have added them in our video archive. Be sure to head over to ONA15 livestream page to (re)watch the full panel.
The first released video coverage of Rachel during the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival have been added in our video archive, including the first press junket interviews. Thanks to my friend Amanda for helping out. The film festival closes today and Rachel was on double festival duty with “Every Thing Will Be Fine” and “Spotlight” playing at the festival. She was also part of Jason Reitman’s Live Read of “The Princess Bride”.
The 23rd Annual Hamptons Film Festival announced earlier this week that “Spotlight” will play as one of the centerpiece selections. The movie will screen on Saturday, October 10. The festival runs from October 8-12 and for more information be sure to head over to the official website.
Deadline’s AwardLine published a press junket interview with writer/director Tom McCarthy and Rachel alongside Sacha Pfeiffer, who she portrays in the movie, which was recorded during the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. The video can be found in our video archive. We also added the portrait session Rachel did alongside McCarthy, her co-stars and the real-life Spotlight team.
This awards season, it’s the battle of the newsroom films with Truth going inside 60 Minutes and the 2004 Rathergate scandal and Spotlight shining on the Boston Globe‘s crack investigative journo team that exposed the Boston Catholic Archdiocese cover-up of its child-molesting priests.
Such intricate stories, like Truth, often are based on a book, but Spotlight director Tom McCarthy bare-knuckled it with scribe Josh Singer, meeting with all the Globe reporters, church officials and investigators involved in the 2001 scandal before they hammered out a script (“I wish it was based on a book,” he told Deadline. “It would have made it much easier.”). McCarthy visited Deadline/Awardsline’s Toronto Film Festival studio and expounded on his approach to the film, along with actress Rachel McAdams, who was in tow with the Boston Globe reporter she portrays in the film: Sacha Pfeiffer who was tasked with interviewing the victims in the molestation case.
Open Road Film will release Spotlight on November 6. The film, which marks the return of Oscar-nominated Birdman actor Micheal Keaton, received rave reviews out of TIFF and has a current Rotten Tomatoes of 96%.

Rachel stopped by ABC’s Popcorn with Peter Travers while she was in New York to promote “Southpaw” last week. The episode was released today and she talked about “Southpaw“, “True Detective” and her career. We have added the interview in our video archive and the high definition screencaptures can be found in our gallery. This has to be one of our favorite interviews of this press tour. It’s really nice to hear Rachel talk about her career in a more in-depth way.

The first trailer for Rachel’s upcoming movie “Spotlight” just got released on Apple’s Itunes. The movie will have it’s world premiere during the Venice Film Festival and will also screen as international premiere during the Toronto International Film Festival. Rachel stars alongside Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Liev Schreiber, Stanley Tucci, and John Slattery. We have added the trailer in our video archive and the high definition screencaptures can be found in our gallery.
In 2001, the Boston Globe began an investigation that would rock the city and shock the world. SPOTLIGHT tells the story of that investigation, the story of Marty Baron (Schreiber), Ben Bradlee Jr. (Slattery) and the four members of the Globe’s investigative Spotlight team – Walter Robinson (Keaton), Mike Rezendes (Ruffalo), Sacha Pfeiffer (McAdams) and Matt Carroll (James) – who would sacrifice everything to expose the Boston Archdiocese’s systemic cover up of sexual abuse of children by ordained priests. For years, whispers of scandal were ignored by society, the media, by police and by the legal system. Silenced by shame, victims of sexual abuse often became victims of suicide. For their commitment to truth, the Spotlight team received the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service.
The movie will hit theaters on November 6. It will expand on November 13 and go wide on November 20. Be sure to also follow the official social media accounts: Twitter @SpotlightMovie, Instagram @SpotlightMovie and Facebook.com/SpotlightMovie account.
