It’s a celebration of the new and an honoring of tradition when Charles Murray’s debut feature, “Things Never Said,” opens the 15th annual Roxbury International Film Festival June 27 at the Museum of Fine Arts. Murray, a veteran television writer for such series as “Castle” and “Criminal Minds,” wrote and directed the drama about two Los Angeles women struggling to find their artistic voices and self-worth.
