Milwaukee Film Festival

When a construction worker unexpectedly joins a local theater's production of ROMEO AND JULIET, the drama onstage starts to mirror his own life. Featuring a real family in the main roles, GHOSTLIGHT demonstrates the power of the arts with an authenticity that only true family ties can create. Filmmaking duo Alex Thompson and Kelly O'Sullivan (SAINT FRANCES, MFF2019) return to the Festival with a film that will have you laughing and crying in equal measure.
