It sure is exciting when local people make a splash in the world of arts and entertainment.  Such is the case with first time writer/director Louie Laccarino.  He's made a movie called "Green River Road," which tells a story of revenge and redemption of two brothers, Cashius and Winston Hurley, who’ve been scorned and outcast from their home town due to the wrongfully accused sins of their father. Fifteen years later, truths arise, as well as the forgotten Hurley Boy’s. Now, it’s a matter of deciding whether revenge is worth losing what little family they have left.  That description comes from the Louisville Film Festival website, as the movie will be shown as part of the festival on Friday.

 

Yep, "Green River Road" is an Official Selection of the 2013 Louisville International Festival of Film. It is showing on Friday, at 4:00pm Eastern in the Wilkinson Room at the Galt House Hotel.  Louie wants to invite any and all tri-staters to come support his effort at the Film Festival.
