feel-good civil disobedience” – The Hollywood Reporter

An unusually
bitter Arctic blast has made its way to downtown Cincinnati. Librarians Stuart
Goodson (Emilio Estevez) and Myra (Jena Malone) see their regular day shaken up
when homeless patrons decide to take shelter in their library for the night.
What starts as a peaceful sit-in quickly escalates into a face-off with the
police, Detective Bill Ramsted (Alec Baldwin), Public Prosecutor Josh Davis
(Christian Slater), and the media. This insightful and uplifting film tackles
some of our nation’s most challenging issues, and sets the dramedy inside one
of the last bastions of democracy-in-action: your public library. See film
trailer here:

Directed and Written by Emilio Estevez
Cast Includes: Alec Baldwin, Emilio Estevez, Jena Malone, Taylor Schilling, Christian Slater, Che “Rhymefest” Smith, Gabrielle Union, Jacob Vargas, Michael K. Williams and Jeffrey Wright
