Re: “Main Street, the movie, surfaces in Cannes

I do have to say that as a Durham resident- i can't get past the misrepresentation of this "small town" with its close knit community of over 200,000 people. This small town that is home to two major universities, the largest Modern dance festival in America, one of the largest science and technology business corridors on the east coast and one of the largest independent film festivals and blues festivals in America. The small town which has recently become famous for its 4 and 5 star gourmet restaurants, now well known in New York. A small town which is actually majority black and at least 1/3 of the residents are transplants from other cities, especially the northeast and whose median household income is 50grand. A small town whose residents are extremely outspoken against injustice, especially environmental injustice (Durham is home to the NC EPA). I have never met anyone here with those accents. If this movie is suppose to represent your average American small town, then calling it Durham, NC was a mistake.
