Synopsis >

Considered to be the film that launched him into stardom, Ed Harris stars as Jimmy Wing, a small town Florida newspaper reporter who has all but given up on his life and career. Wing has become beleaguered and amoral, accepting bribes from a local politician to write slanderous articles about an environmental activist group who are protesting the development of an ecologically devastating real-estate project. However, the more he investigates the group, the more intrigued he becomes by it. As his interests shift to favor the environmental group, he puts himself in dangerous standing with the corrupt politicians bankrolling him. In typical Harris fashion, the character he portrays isn't absolutely good or evil; he's simply human - for better or worse. From IFC Films, Victor Nunez's (Ulee’s Gold, Ruby in Paradise) heartfelt piece of American independent cinema was nominated for the Sundance Film Festival’s Grand Jury Prize and is ripe for rediscovery.
