GIVEAWAY: advance screening of ‘ROMAN J. ISRAEL, ESQ.’ AT THE 26th Philadelphia Film Festival

Hey MMT Fam! We have a cool giveaway, courtesy of the 26th Philadelphia Film Festival (PFF), but you have to be quick! ROMAN J. ISRAEL, ESQ. was added to the festival line-up this Wednesday, October 25.

“Roman J. Israel, Esq.” is a dramatic thriller set in the underbelly of the overburdened Los Angeles criminal court system. Denzel Washington stars as a driven, idealistic defense attorney whose life is upended when a turbulent series of events challenge the activism that has defined his career. Colin Farrell costars as the ambitious, monied lawyer who recruits Roman to his firm.
