A small-town nurse named Susette Kelo (Catherine Keener, Get Out)
emerges as the reluctant leader of her working-class neighbors in their
struggle to save their homes from political and corporate interests
bent on seizing the land and handing it over to Pfizer Corporation.
Susette’s battle goes all the way to the US Supreme Court and the
controversial 5-4 decision in Kelo vs. City of New London gave
government officials the power to bulldoze a neighborhood for the
benefit of a multibillion-dollar corporation. The decision outraged
Americans across the political spectrum, and that passion fueled reforms
that helped curb eminent domain abuse.
“Like Erin Brockovich for eminent domain, LITTLE PINK HOUSE does
well to explain the thorny legal issue at its center without getting
bogged down in minutiae.” – Tatiana Craine, The Village Voice
