The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

BEV­ERLY HILLS, Calif. — Melissa Mays, a res­i­dent of Flint, Michi­gan, came armed to dis­cuss the city’s tainted wa­ter cri­sis and a new Life­time TV movie dra­ma­tiz­ing it.

Mays, speak­ing to a TV crit­ics’ meet­ing Fri­day in Bev­erly Hills, Cal­i­for­nia, pointed to sev­eral bot­tles she had filled with her tap wa­ter, and chal­lenged the room to taste or just smell it. There were no im­me­di­ate tak­ers.

The ac­tivist, who said the bat­tle over wa­ter safety con­tin­ues, is among the res­i­dents por­trayed in Life­time’s movie ti­tled “Flint.’’ Mays is played by Marin Ire­land, who co-stars with Betsy Brandt, Jill Scott and Queen Lat­i­fah.
