Colewell with filmmaker Tom Quinn

Presented by California Film Institute at Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center

Nominated for two Independent Spirit Awards, Tom Quinn’s poignant film is an ode to small-town life and the profound emotions that come with nostalgia and memories of the past.

In tiny Colewell, Pennsylvania, residents gather at the post office for mail and gossip, while the days pass quiet and serene.

When news comes that the office is to close, beloved clerk Nora (a marvelous Karen Allen) is left to fight for her job or consider retirement.

Allen’s delicate performance, infused with grace and integrity, captures the intimate and often private struggles that occur later in life, when unexpected changes occur.

Heartened by a great supporting cast including Hannah Gross and Kevin J. O’Connor, Colewell gorgeously captures rural America, while giving space to the beauty of time passing and the challenges of starting over.
