ET Canada’s Cheryl Hickey sat down with Canada’s own Rachel McAdams and Sacha Pfeiffer to talk about the making of their new film Spotlight, which premiered during the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.
Spotlight follows the true story of how journalists at the Boston Globe uncovered the biggest scandal of child molestation within the local Catholic Archdiocese, inevitably affecting the entire Catholic Church.
McAdams says she loves coming to TIFF because of the film buffs that flock to the festival.
“I love watching films at TIFF because you know everybody that goes is such a film lover and usually a film buff and they are really there, you know, for all the right reasons it feels like,” she said.
It’s no question these actors had big shoes to fill in order to portray their characters in a genuine way.
Pfeiffer, the real life journalist from the story, praised McAdams for her commitment to her portrayal.
“There’s a little scene where she kind of, sort of just flips her hair out of her eyes like I do and she sort of puts her fingers on her chin and my brother said, ‘you do that all the time,’” the actress told ET Canada.
