- Synopsis / Plot
- The film explores the conflicting stereotypes and illustrates how values like community service, duty, spiritual life, generosity and authenticity are formed, experienced and lived. The film gives a complex and nuanced view of daily life in farming Monrovia, Indiana -population of 1,083, founded in 1834- and provides some understanding of a rural, mid-American way of life that has always been important in America but whose influence and force have not always been recognized or understood in the big cities on the east and west coasts of America and in other countries.
Premiere: Venice Film Festival (sept). New York City’s Film Forum on October 26. L.A. release on November 2.
