Missed it, Dangit!

Apparently, as part of an enticement to film here, the State of Connecticut has been offering some tax breaks and incentives to Hollywood. So, this new movie, All Good Things starring Kirsten Dunst and Ryan Gosling is being filmed here. And, not just here in Connecticut, but here in my town. They are also shooting on Lake Lillinonah tomorrow. My dad was in the music store this evening getting his bass fixed when a props guy was in there getting a guitar for Kirsten Dunst set up for the film. Apparently, she plays the guitar and would like to perform this stunt herself in the movie. All exciting things.

I am only sorry I missed their set-up in town. Would have been pretty cool to have seen our entire community center draped in blackout cloth. Such are the challenges of shooting night scenes without the assistance of actual night. I am still kicking myself for not popping on my sneakers and hoofing it downtown to check it out. I keep racking my brain to figure out why I didn't? I suppose it could have been because it was over 100 degrees that day. Maybe that's why?

Well, that's about all from this sleepy town reporter.

They filmed The House That Rocks the Cradle (remember that?) in a house on the route I walked to and from middle school. After that I always felt slightly chilled passing it.

You'll get to watch the movie and say loudly in the theater "HEY EVERYONE! I KNOW THAT PLACE!!" Which means you'll have to go somewhere else to watch it.
