ah! come on! let's hide in the attic. no. in the basement. why can't we just get in the running car? are you crazy? let's hide behind the chainsaws. smart. yeah. ok. if you're in a horror movie, you make poor decisions. it's what you do. this was a good idea. shhhh. be quiet. i'm being quiet. you're breathing on me! if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico.
>> a new movie is shining a light on a dark file in boston's history. the movie's spotlight is about the sexual abuse scandal that rocked the catholic church. >> tonight some of the film's stars are in town for a special showing. tim caputo is there at the coolidge corner theater in brookline. is it a big crowd? who get to go? >> well, there's a tent up out raining. in is the boston premier. it's already getting oscar buzz. it's a film that truly shows journalists as heroes as they
take on the catholic church. the film is based on the true story of the boston globe's spotlight routine. a small group of investigator reporters who uncover a massive cover-up of child molestation in the catholic church. it led to an investigation of cardinal bernard law. it portrays the troubling time in boston's history where it was ignored or swept under the rug and no one dared question the church. a powerful influential institution and a predominately catholic city. the writer and director of the film went to boston college, thought it was important to not shy away from the harsh reality of such an unsettling subject and reporters portrayed by actors in this movie says it also shows a glimpse to what true journalism is all about. >> it was a lot of fun. he was a fan. and he couldn't have been nicer. you know, he's very interested in the role and wanted to know
started. >> wanted to hang out with me. and so we've become pals. >> you guys spend months and months doing an investigation to put out these stories. >> that's their job. you know, they're really good with what they do. i think the movie's terrific to get moving. it shines a light on the importance of investigative journalism at a time when the newspaper industry is really hurting in the internet era and there are all kinds of cutbacks which threaten the investigative dramas. so i hope it really takes that message to a broader audience. >> we acknowledge the terrible
crimes committed by clergy against children, they released a statement, and the failure of many leaders within the church to deal appropriately with these crimes. that said, the church is committed to the protection of children while at the same time providing support to survivors and all people who have suffered as a result of clergy sexual abuse. the archdiocese of boston has taken aggressive steps to ensure proper reporting, training and screening for priests, staff, and volunteers. >> the film black mask, which also had a special screening here. boston the city itself playing a big role but maybe not the most flattering topic. this is a compelling film. i go the to see it yesterday with a ensemble cast, you see on the poster behind me. michael keaton as well as mark rough low, mark rough low, one of the actors who will be out here on the red carpet in just a little bit. live in brookline, tim caputo, 7news.
the storm overnight and into early tomorrow, rainfall 1 2 inches with some storms possible. if you can delay that morning ride for a little bit longer, mid morning on, that's fine. the sun will come out like that, and you'll be rewarded, richly rewarded. in the morning early, 5:00 to 8:00, we still may have some storms. tides run eye, wind gusts 25 to
45 miles per hour. that in and of itself is not a huge deal but the fact of the matter is the wind is going tonight of tomorrow too, principles will pay off in that maybe some power lines will go down or weekend tree limits. isolated power outages possible. temps in the 50s rising overnight. winds gusting to 30 already. and that's only gonna get worse. we're watching very carefully the round of rain coming through connecticut right now. zoom in, it's just steady rain from time to time, nothing too huge here passes off and we get a little break. look behind me, the orange starting to show up on the map. already jumping the gun out through springfield and hartford. two high tide cycles late tonight around midnight and 12:00 noon tomorrow. there's the rain through connecticut. on top of us through 10:00. and then through the course of the night we'll have the downpours.
they'll pop up and move on. pop up and move on. a lot of wind, too, and then the final event between 7:00 and 10:00, or really, 9:00, tomorrow, then it scoots offshore. the sun is back by 10:00 to 11:00 very quickly and the winds come down, and then ramp back up as the store passes by to our north on thursday. so a windy day all around, but the fiercest winds i think between now and also early morning, 1 to 2 inches of rain and then it's done and we go into a little dry spell. we might have a sprinkle on sunday but hain looks great. the pats game looks okay. but a little windy for the pats and there might be a sprinkle at the very beginning of the game, go, pats, and next week a really warm-up, too, by the way. see you tonight. >> we are coming to you live from the garden where the celtics tip off their season tonight against the philadelphia 76ers. after making the play-offs for the first time under coach brad stevens' last season, the
celtics say they are ready to take that next step in the postseason and stevens' third year on the bench. this is a team priding itself on how deep they are this season without any real stars on this squad, despite having all the first round picks at his disposal. danny did not make a major splash in the off-season but brought in david lee and amir johnson, the two newest celtics bring play-off experience to boston, as well, as a greater understanding of what it will take to become a successful team. >> play-off teams take care of their home or the and win a vast majority of their home games and that's part of being a play-off team and a part of being a successful team in the nba, you have to take care of your home court. >> you'll be able to see things and start the grind and get back in the competition. >> the bruins skating often garden knights last night for the first time this season with
a w, a much-needed win. a 6-0 shut-out of the coyotes last night. that was after the bs had lost their first four games of the season here in this building. david krejci once again, the star of the show for the bruins, he keeps on bringing it. the bruins' top line center with two more goals last night upping his season total of 7, matching his goal output from all of last season. the white hawk crotchy is second in the league and points and goals recording at least one point in all eight games this season. >> i'm confident in this league and he's got off to a good start, feeling good about his game. he's very healthy as you can see, so that makes a big difference. and it was nice to have him back. >> always nice. when you see those point. but it's a pretty good feeling. >> so it's a good feeling. >> speaking offenses firing on all cylinders. the miami dolphins come to town
riding a two-game winning streak scoring 82 points in those two wins. ryan had four touchdowns in last sunday's game and not learning the offensive player of the week but praise from the patriots' defense. >> it's another guy that can move in the pocket and company run, at athletic, used to be a receiver in college. so there's definitely things you can do as a defensive lineman that you have to be aware of and you can go out there and just run away and make place. >> i think he's playing good football. he's doing a good job. anytime you have, i think it was like 25 straight completions, you know, that means you're not going in there and not throwing complete passes. >> the new england revolution square off with dc united tonight in the knockout round of the mls play-offs. we'll have complete postgame coverage with interviews and all of the highlights from the celtics and sixers tonight coming up on 7news at 10:00 and 11:00. reporting live at the garden,
