    Spotlight movies (think marquee directors, star performers, big issues) include "All We Had" (directed by and starring Katie Holmes), "Custody" (Viola Davis), "The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea" (Jason Sudeikis, Jessica Biel, Maisie Williams), "Don't Think Twice" (Keegan-Michael Key), "A Hologram for the King" (Tom Hanks), "The Family Fang" (Christopher Walken), "The Meddler" (Susan Sarandon, Rose Byrne) and "Mr. Church" (Eddie Murphy). 

    Here, the facts you need to know before heading to the festival:
