Storyline

A small-town nurse named Susette Kelo emerges as the reluctant leader of her working-class neighbors in their struggle to save their homes from political and corporate interests bent on seizing the land and handing it over to Pfizer Corporation. Susette's battle goes all the way to the US Supreme Court and the controversial 5-4 decision in Kelo vs. City of New London gave government officials the power to bulldoze a neighborhood for the benefit of a multibillion-dollar corporation. The decision outraged Americans across the political spectrum, and that passion fueled reforms that helped curb eminent domain abuse. Written by Courtney Balaker

Trivia

While the cast list says that Sandra Day O'Connor is the chief justice of the United States Supreme Court, she never held that position. However the movie is correct in showing her as the presiding justice at the oral argument where just seven justices were present. Chief Justice Rehnquist was absent due to illness. Associate justice Stevens was also absent due to a travel delay. However both those justices did participate in the final 5-4 decision. See more »

Goofs

While Susette's house number is correctly shown as 8, as in 8 East Street where the little pink house was located, there are numbers on other houses that are four digits. New London is only six square miles and has no streets with houses with four digit numbers, especially in the Fort Trumbull neighborhood which is made up of several short streets. See more »

User Reviews

 
despotism right here in America
16 October 2018 | by rupieSee all my reviews

This is somewhat of a depressing film to watch, as we all know the ending, and it's not a happy one. The highest court in the land basically said it was fine for government to seize the private property of Party A and give it to Party B if the net result was more revenue for the government doing the seizing. Stalin, Mao, Mussollini and Hitler would have hailed the decision. The film itself is a bit understated and there are no top tier actors involved, but the story is told well and everyone acquits himself well here. It is worth noting that, in the final Supreme Court decision it was those nasty and mean-spirited right-wing conservatives - O'Connor, Rehnquist, Thomas and Scalia - who sided with Ms. Kelo, while all the liberal champions of the poor and downtrodden - Souter, Ginsburg, Breyer, Kennedy and Stevens - said it was fine for the government to seize working people's private property.
