Movie night in Cawston

Feature Film – “Crazy Like a Fox” Nat Bank’s family has been living at Greenwood Farm for eight generations until real estate developers swindle him out of his land. Nat then proceeds to temporarily lose his mind, leave his family and hole up in a cave on the property to wage war on all foreign intruders (especially crooked real estate developers.) Cave dwelling is fine during the summer time in Virginia but as soon as the winter sets in, Nat is forced to make a move. This sometimes slapstick, sometimes serious film explores the loss of culture and heritage to changing times, and how a community can make a difference!
