‘Gosnell’ movie worth seeing, but can you?

It’s interesting that a movie breaking into the top 10 during its first week out is suddenly dropped from theaters the second week and is hardly available now, especially in smaller markets.
    That’s what critics are wondering about the movie “Gosnell,” which follows the investigation and trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, a 30-year abortion doctor in Philadelphia.         What started as an investigation into illegal prescription drug sales in Gosnell’s clinic turned into a murder investigation. He is serving a life sentence without parole for the murder of babies born alive after abortion procedures, as well as for the death of a woman who died in his clinic.
    It was the trial, and now the movie, that major left-leaning news organizations and reviewers evidently don’t want you to see.
    Consider this: Filmmaker Phelim McAleer told one reporter Facebook and NPR blocked their ads for the movie. “Gosnell” received reviews from just two mainstream reviewers, while another movie out the same week, “Beautiful Boy,” about opioid addiction garnered 70 reviews and was showing in fewer theaters. Despite being in the top 10 after the first week, 200 of the 600 theaters dropped it after one week.
