We Need to Talk About Stamford

The movie, We Need to Talk About Kevin, starring Tilda Swinton and and John C. Reilly, is out. Why should you care? Because it was filmed in your backyard! I haven't seen it yet - and the subject matter is heavy - but it's supposed to be very good. If you go, see if you can identify any bits of our town on the big screen.
