This feature film was shot at its namesake city by a local director, from a script by a local writer, with Alfred Molina, Lauren Bacal, Hayden Panettiere, Dina Eastwood and Josh Hutchersonl in the leads (and many locals as extras). It tells the story of a troubled teenager who encounters different factions of Carmel's art community in his search for home and meaning. It was shot a couple of years ago and went through some legal and logistical wrangling, but here it is, in all its local glory, in this preview screening that starts with a VIP wine reception and silent auction, is accompanied by the filmmakers, and is followed by an art raffle. Proceeds benefit the new Monterey Bay Film Society of CSUMB. (See Film story.) [WR]
