Bright Leaves

McElwee family legend has it that the Hollywood melodrama Bight Leaf, starring Gary Cooper as a 19th century tobacco, grower is based on filmmaker Ross McElwee’s great-grandfather, who created the Bull Durham brand. Using this legacy as a jumping off point, MCElwee reaches back to his roots in this wry, witty rumination on American history, the tobacco business, and the myth of cinema. (105 mins)
