 In a remote seaside village in Maine, a legendary film star (Kane) shows up to buy the home of an elderly couple.

The Cripple of Inishmaan  | Open: 12/20/08 Close: 02/01/09
Set in 1934 on an island off the west coast of Ireland, Hollywood filmmaker Robert Flaherty arrives on the neighboring island of Inishmore to film his movie “The Man of Aran” and excitement ripples through the sleepy community of Inishmaan. For orphaned Billy Claven, who has been relentlessly scorned by the island’s inhabitants, the film represents an escape from the poverty of his existence. He vies for a part in the film, and to everyone’s surprise, it is the cripple who gets his chance.
