Sunshine State

Edie Falco, Angela Bassett, Timothy Hutton and Mary Steenburgen lead a terrific all-star cast in this charming comic drama from acclaimed director John Sayles ("Lone Star"). This slice-of-life story set in a small Florida community, tells of the struggles the residents face when their town is targeted for redevelopment and they must confront the temptation of big bucks, the fear of big change and decide whether to hold onto the past or to face the future. Sharply written dialogue, real-life characters and brilliant natural performances - all of the usual John Sayles trademarks are on display in this highly acclaimed film that's full of humour and heart.
