Storyline

To the young people of Ellington the Supermarket was many different things. Another home, a place they'd known as long as they can remember. A one-of-a-kind place to work, build friendships and have as much fun as possible without getting caught. The heart of their town, a farming community with more cows than people and the last outpost for Rockwell's America. But this summer Ellington, the Supermarket, and the young people who cared for it the most will grow up. A modern day Capraesque tale about growing into adulthood in small town USA, 'The Supermarket' is a story of laughter, love, old rivalries, coming home for the summer, barely functional cars, small triumphs and tragic loss, late-night lawbreaking, fearing the future, food fights, standing together, and finding your place in the world.

Before being cast as the characters they eventually played, many actors were intended for other parts. Carolyne Burgess played a shopper extra in several scenes, and Bob Ondek was intended for the part Kristen Savage eventually played. Randy Paradis was simply going to cameo as the Legal Representative From S-Mart Corporation, as he was also busy in a local production of Macbeth at the time. See more »

Quotes

Deirdre Boyle: What they don't realize is how many people are going to be forced to work at S-Mart for shitty pay, and no hope for improvement. I mean, these service jobs that we have, we're the new working class, people don't work in factories or mills anymore, it's the people behind registers or stocking shelves. Only with all these huge chains moving in everywhere, there's no chance for unionization, no hope for better wages. And if these companies take over all over the country, we're gonna have an entire...

A very excellent movie
18 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I live in Ellington, and have seen The Supermarket many times. For a low-budget film, it is surprisingly well done. It is a very funny movie as well. Tim Norman knows how to make a comedy-drama film, and I only hope he can make more.

Ellington Supermarket was a part of my life. My parents shopped there, it was where we would go every Friday to buy our groceries. When it closed, it was like it created a little hole in my heart that remained unoccupied until this film came along to preserve its memory. Ellington Supermarket will never truly be gone, as long as this film is around to memorialize it.
