"Get Out" star Catherine Keener plays a frustrated homeowner whose house is in danger of being taken away by the government in the trailer for "Little Pink House."

Based on the true story, Keener portrays Susette Kelo, a middle-aged divorcee who, after purchasing and fixing up a pink Victorian cottage in Connecticut, saw herself caught in a nasty legal war with local politicians who wanted to tear down her entire small-town neighborhood in order to redevelop the land for new office and apartment buildings.

"The constitution and the Fifth Amendment ... it's, ah, called Eminent Domain. They can take your home. They can take your land. It's perfectly legal." Susette is told this after realizing her home has been targeted by the government. But she isn't the type to roll over and take it, that's for sure.

Written and directed by documentary filmmaker Courtney Moorehead Balaker and based on Jeff Benedict's investigative book of the same name, "Little Pink House" also stars Jeanne Tripplehorn (Big Love), Callum Keith Rennie (Fifty Shades of Gray) and Giacomo Baessato (TV's The Returned).

The film is slated for a theatrical release on April 20th, opening first in New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and San Francisco before rolling out to other cities across the country throughout the month of May. It will also be made available on VOD beginning April 23rd.

synopsis:
Based on a true story, a small-town EMT named Susette Kelo (Catherine Keener) leaves a bad marriage, and starts over in a new town. She buys a rundown cottage in New London, Connecticut, refurbishes it with her bare hands, paints it pink, meets a great guy (Callum Keith Rennie), and exhales.

Then she discovers powerful politicians are bent on bulldozing her blue-collar neighborhood to make way for condos and office buildings designed to benefit the new corporate headquarters of pharmaceutical giant, Pfizer. (Execs are eager to expand their facilities because they have high hopes for a soon-to-be-released drug called Viagra).

The redevelopment effort is spearheaded by Dr. Charlotte Wells (Jeanne Tripplehorn) -- ambitious and accomplished, she's the closest thing the gritty town has to a celebrity.

With the help of a young lawyer named Scott Bullock (Giacomo Baessato), Susette emerges as the reluctant leader of her neighbors in an epic battle that goes all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, inspires a nation, and helps millions of Americans protect their homes.
