Happy Wednesday MMT Family! Very excited that I get to share this advanced screening with you! I was able to preview SPOTLIGHT at the 24th Annual Philadelphia Film Festival last week, and it is by far one of the best stories I’ve seen this year. It tells the true story of the Pulitzer prize-winning Boston Globe news team that uncovered the sexual abuse scandal in the Roman Catholic church. The movie features an all-star cast, including Academy-award winners Michael Keaton and Stanley Tucci.
