Sunshine State


Sunshine State
From acclaimed writer/director John Sayles (Lone Star, Passion Fish) comes an unforgettable portrait of a richly diverse Florida town threatened by real estate developers. Edie Falco, Angela Bassett and Timothy Hutton lead a remarkable ensemble.

A tidal wave of change is coming to Delrona Beach, Florida. Out-of-state developers have descended upon the sleepy coastal community with the promise of big bucks and bigger changes. Torn between honouring family obligations and the lure of quick cash, the locals greet the outsiders with a wildly mixed reception. Marly (Falco, TV's ''The Sopranos'') is eager to sell the family business and start her life over. As caretaker to her father's motel and restaurant, she's grown resentlful of missed opportunities, but finds a glimmer of hope in a tentative romance with visiting landscape architect (Oscar winner Timothy Hutton). Desiree (Oscar nominee Angel Bassett) left town years ago to escape scandal and make a name for herself as an actress. Reluctantly returning home, she finds her strong-willed mother (Mary Alice) unwilling to let go of the past.

Co-starring Mary Steenburgen, James McDaniel, Jane Alexander and Ralph Waite, SUNSHINE STATE is a winning tribute to everyone who lives and works in a land of dreams realised and dreams deferred.
