Before its national release, Courtney Balaker's feature film Little Pink House gets a one-night-only screening in the Triangle. Starring Catherine Keener and Jeanne Tripplehorn, the film is an adaptation of Jeff Benedict's book Little Pink House: A True Story of Defiance and Courage. It's based on the true story of Susette Kelo (Keener), an EMT who escapes from a bad marriage and then refurbishes her own cottage in New London, Connecticut, only for it to be seized by eminent domain to make way for private development at the whim of pharmaceutical giant Pfizer. Kelo rallies the neighborhood to fight the state government and the corporation all the way to the Supreme Court. Check out the Boston Globe review if you want a spoiler; otherwise, just know that this was a pivotal decision in the balance of home owners' rights. —Brian Howe
