"MR. PIG may be an elegy, [but] it won't traffic in self-importance or self-pity." — John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter

A moving, finely tuned performance by Danny Glover as Ambrose, an aging pig farmer heading down his last highway, anchors this gentle road movie on the elusive trail of forgiveness. Concealing alcoholism, foreclosure, and a health secret from his estranged adult daughter Eunice (Rudolph), Ambrose dotes on Howie, the enormous prize hog that occupies a central place in his life as his pet and emotional anchor. A trip to Mexico to sell Howie for a handsome sum in order to create a legacy for Eunice goes awry, bringing cantankerous father and wary daughter together for one last chance to connect as family. In English. DCP digital. (BS)

OCTOBER 7: A reception after the screening will be provided with the support of Constellation Brands, Atzimba Catering, and The Consulate General of Mexico. Ticket stub required.
