Sun, 10-Dec-2017 - 2:00 PM

When Rick brings his Brooklyn-born wife Leah back to his hometown of Clutier, Iowa, Leah is less than thrilled and finds a way to offend most everyone in town. But when she discovers that they might have to stay in Clutier for good, she is forced to search for the reason why Rick loves it so much.

Written and Directed by Scott Thompson, My Town Pictures

Starring: Brian Winslow and Carmen Caruso-Winslow

This film was made in Clutier, Iowa in the spring of 2011.

This showing of "Hometown" is part of the "1942 Film Festival" at the Wieting. The complete, but tentative, schedule of films include:

  • November 12th - "The Sullivans" (later re-titled as "The Fighting Sullivans")
  • November 19th - "In the Shadow of Memory"
  • November 26th - "Casablanca"
  • December 3rd - "Windtalkers"
  • December 10th - "Hometown" (the Clutier movie)

The festival is sponsored and organized by Mr. Kennan Seda. The overall, long-term festival plan is to screen classic World War II movies over the next several years so older residents can enjoy these movies again and to hopefully expose younger students to some of the history of World War II.

This screening is free and open to the public.  Free will offerings will be accepted and donated to The Clutier Betterment Committee and The Clutier Library.
