a sort of homecoming

'A Sort of Homecoming', filmed right here in Lafayette, will make its Louisiana debut on Thursday, August 5 at the LITE Center, as part of the Southern Film Festival. According to the filmmakers, here's a synopsis of the story:

'This feature film tells the story of Amy (Michelle Clunie), a New York news producer who thought she left her high school experiences long in the past. She unexpectedly returns to Louisiana at the request of her high school debate coach (Kathleen Wilhoite). Their strained reunion brings back memories of her tumultuous senior year of high school. Through a series of flashbacks, we follow young Amy (Laura Marano) and her debate partner Nick (Parker Mack) on the highly competitive national debate circuit as they meet compatriots (Katherine McNamara) and competitors from top high schools around the country and the college coaches who control access to valuable scholarships.'

Tickets are available in advance, and if they are not sold out, at the door. The film premiere is at 7:30 pm at the LITE Center, 337 Cajundome Blvd. We are so proud already of this local film, and can't wait to see it! Check out the official movie trailer below
