People at the Washington Post have been “anxiously awaiting the portrayal of Executive Editor Martin Baron in the film “Spotlight.” The film highlights Baron’s time as editor of The Boston Globe, where he oversaw the newspaper’s Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage of widespread sexual abuse in the Catholic Church and their attempts to cover up the scandal, reports The Post, which added:

“The film recently premiered at the Venice Film Festival, and Variety called it “magnificently nerdy.” The Boston Globe said the film “premiered to sustained applause.”

“Spotlight” stars Liev Schreiber as Baron, plus Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Michael Keaton and Stanley Tucci.

The film will also be featured at the Toronto Film Festival before its official release November 6, stated The Post’s piece.
