More people have come forward with sex assault allegations after the film Spotlight

More victims of sexual assault have found the courage to come forward after watching Oscar-nominated Spotlight, it has been claimed.

The film tells the true story how investigative reporters from the Boston Globe uncovered child molestation and its cover-up within their local Catholic church in 2001.

In an interview with the Independent, the Globe’s editor-at-large Walter Robinson said the film had made a huge impact on the public ‘in a way that the printed word never could have’.

‘More victims are coming forward because of this film,’ he claimed.
