Join us Thursday, September 15, 7-9 pm for our screening of John Sayles' survey of personal intrigue set against the profounder social nemesis of the privatization of the economic value of nature, "Sunshine State."

Golden, sunflaked-colored with butter and yeast popcorn will attend this showing. As usual, theme and production values discussion will follow the film.

Critic's synopsis:

Ambitious land developers descend on a tiny Florida coastline community, inhabited mostly by local yokels and elderly African Americans. Many of them don't want to see their homes and businesses sacrificed in the name of "progress" (a.k.a. condos, hotels, strip malls, and so on). But the city council appears to be all too willing to let them come in and develop the land. In addition, one weary hotel owner is thinking about giving in and selling. Meanwhile, one prominent African American athlete suddenly becomes interested in buying out his aging neighbors. So now that the wheels of progress appear to be in motion, it seems that a minor miracle is the only thing that can stop it.
