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 there are some genuine scenes of New London at the beginning, the portrayal of the Gold Star Bridge which spans the Thames Estuary between New London and Groton is clearly a different bridge; the Gold Star Bridge has two distinct spans for northbound and southbound traffic. See more »

Important, entertaining, not to be missed
21 April 2018 | by donhauptmanSee all my reviews

How many movies can you name that have the potential to change the world for the better - while being hugely entertaining, to boot? And how often does one find in cinemas a riveting true story about heroism, determination, and persistence? Few films these days present a principled fight for human liberty and individual rights - in this case an ordinary citizen's crusade to save her home from a powerful government's attempts to take it from her. Little Pink House is an outstanding film in all respects: top-notch performances, direction, production values. It's not a documentary but a dramatized, narrative retelling of Susette Kelo's story - a landmark case that went all the way to The Supreme Court and is still resonating today, as important as ever. I've seen this great film three times and it just gets better with every viewing. See it now, while it's in a theater.
