BIG EDDY SELECT SCREENINGS offer local audiences more opportunities to screen impactful and independent films throughout the year. In true Big Eddy Film Festival fashion, we are offering an exclusive talkback after the screening with the film’s stars and local faces, Raye Levine and Sawyer Spielberg, as well as writer and directors Caroline Keene and Dan Kennedy. Moderated by our very own Greg Triggs, this talkback will really put the FUN in dysfunctional family drama.
