Matt Damon’s ‘Stillwater’ is an enjoyable throwback, despite missteps

"Spotlight" director Tom McCarthy's drama-thriller takes the Cambridge native to France seeking justice. In a 2018 interview, Matt Damon lamented the death of the “$15 to $70 million drama.” In the Cambridge native’s eyes, the mid-budget, character-driven films that were commonplace in the ’90s and typified by “Good Will Hunting” would rarely hit theaters these days.

Two of the more common business terms you may hear are “sector” and “industry.” They are often used to describe the same thing, but they’re not actually the same.
