Based on true events, Little Pink House follows small-town paramedic Susette Kelo (Catherine Keener, Get Out, Capote) as she leaves a bad marriage and starts over in a new town. She buys a rundown cottage in economically depressed New London, Connecticut, refurbishes it with her bare hands, paints it pink, meets a great guy (Callum Keith Rennie), and exhales. Then she discovers that powerful politicians are bent on bulldozing her blue-collar neighborhood, claiming the right of eminent domain, and handing the land over to pharmaceutical giant Pfizer (eager to expand their facilities because of a promising soon-to-be-released drug called Viagra). The redevelopment effort is spearheaded by Dr. Charlotte Wells (Jeanne Tripplehorn, “Big Love”); ambitious and accomplished, she’s the closest thing the gritty town has to a celebrity. Emerging as the reluctant leader of her neighbors, Susette fights all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, inspiring a nation as she seeks to help millions of Americans protect their homes. Featuring “Home Free,” an original song by David Crosby. Written and directed by Courtney Moorehead Balaker, based on the bestselling book by Jeff Benedict.
