Great view of coal-country western PA.
27 February 2006 | by (Western Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

I had the privilege of screening this film this past week at the International Arts Movement conference in NYC.

David Hunt and Patricia Heaton screened it for about 250 of us and answered with a question and answer period following.

It's a great documentary which borders on feeling like a mockumentary at times, but unintentionally. It's a fun, but reverent look at small town Pittsburgh coal region life with a girls pageant at the center of the action. The movie was great and humorous without being condescending as Hollywood can often be about small town life.

The gem of humor comes from the tool of a sound guy who is far too 'big for his britches' - he really thinks he's important; it's too bad that his 'big break' makes him look like a tool - but one that is fun to laugh at.
