If you haven't had a chance to check out the new family film A Plumm Summer it's not too late! The movie is playing its crucial second weekend in your area tomorrow night, Saturday and Sunday. And for those of you around Lakewood, California, adorable little Rocky from the film (Owen Pierce) will be signing posters Sunday from 1-5 at the Lakewood Theater!

It's simply tough for independent films like A Plumm Summer to compete with big budget Hollywood films, which is why we'd love your help to organize and get everyone you know to go and see it this weekend! A successful second weekend for A Plumm Summer means that more families will have a chance to see the film in more locations and most importantly, Hollywood will hopefully take notice and start to invest time and money into making quality films with stories that appeal to families.

If you haven't yet heard about the film, the LA Times sums it up: "At a time when most family films come across as extended toy advertisements or digital extravaganza, there is something refreshing about a homespun, live-action tale of summertime adventure full of bicycles and tennis shoes, where the most high-tech gadget is a squawky radio walkie-talkie."

A Plumm Summer was Winner of the Audience Best Film Award at the International Family Film Festival,andis based on a true story in Montana in the 1960's, where well-loved local TV legend and puppet, FroggyDoo, gets stolen during a live show. The families of Montana outcry at FroggyDoo's loss prompts an FBI investigation, but the children of Peaks View take the mystery into their own hands and it's a race to unravel the mystery (hint: those FBI agents are slow to catch on...)! A Plumm Summer features celebrated actors, Henry Winkler, Billy Baldwin, Jeff Daniels and Brenda Strong (from Desperate Housewives) as well as talented, up-and-coming child actors, all of whom transport you to their small town where themes of friendship and family become interwoven in this amazing little movie.

The movie is playing this weekend in these 4 areas:
· California: LA and surrounding areas
· Alabama: Birmingham, Trussville
· Minnesota: Oakdale, Lakeville, Eagan
· Montana: Billings, Bozeman, Kalispel, Livingston or Missoula

Theaters are updated daily so be sure to check the A Plumm Summer website for a complete list of theaters in your area as well as a sneak peak at the trailer for the film.
