Ellen Burstyn's character, "Georgiana Carr," bears the last name of an actual Durham, N.C., family that was prominent in the tobacco business. The large portrait in her house, showing a uniformed man with a big white mustache, is a picture of Julian Shakespeare Carr (1845-1924), one of Durham's earliest tobacco magnates, who was involved in a variety of other business enterprises and was a highly regarded philanthropist. The portrait normally resides in the North Carolina Collection of the Durham County Public Library. See more »

This film is about an old lady renting a warehouse to a Texan man, enabling a hazardous waste disposal company to expand its operation into a small Southern town.
"Main Street" revolves around an old lady, played expertly by Ellen Burstyn. She is broke and has to either sell the house or to lease her warehouse. Her fragile mental state and her internal struggle about what is right to do are well portrayed. "Main Street" has an engaging plot, characters are developed well, so viewers get to care for every character. The only drawback is that the budget seems to have gone to the cast, with almost nothing left for the technical equipment. Anyway, "Main Street" is still an enjoyable and engaging drama.
