Member Screening: Mayan Theater on May 1, 2018 at 7:30 PM
Little Pink House stars two-time Academy Award nominee Catherine Keener (Get Out, Capote, The 40-Year-Old Virgin), Emmy nominee Jeanne Tripplehorn (Big Love, The Firm, Grey Gardens), and Callum Keith Rennie (Fifty Shades of Gray, Warcraft: The Beginning, Memento). Based on a true story, a small-town EMT named Susette Kelo (Catherine Keener) leaves a bad marriage, and starts over in a new town. She buys a rundown cottage in New London, Connecticut, refurbishes it with her bare hands, paints it pink, meets a great guy (Callum Keith Rennie), and exhales. Then she discovers powerful politicians are bent on bulldozing her blue-collar neighborhood to make way for condos and office buildings designed to benefit the new corporate headquarters of pharmaceutical giant, Pfizer. With the help of a young lawyer named Scott Bullock (Giacomo Baessato), Susette emerges as the reluctant leader of her neighbors in an epic battle that goes all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, inspires a nation, and helps millions of Americans protect their homes.
