Watch: Conversations with the Cast of ‘Spotlight’

Spotlight has emerged as one of the frontrunners for Best Picture at this year’s Oscars, and even if the producers don’t take home the big prize they can take consolation in the fact that two of the film’s performances were nominated — Mark Ruffalo and Rachel McAdams — and Best Director for Tom McCarthy. Those three nominees were joined by actor Liev Schreiber and journalist Sacha Pfeiffer, whom McAdams portrays in the film, for a Screen Actors Guild Foundation Conversation moderated by Scott Feinberg of The Hollywood Reporter.

The panel was recorded just days before Oscar nominations were announced. Spotlight is now available on Blu-ray and DVD.

The actors and McCarthy talked about the challenges of making a film about such a controversial subject, what drew them each to the script, and how important “restraint” was in making the film.

You can view the video of the full panel above.
