Production Weekly reports that Sarah Jessica Parker is set to topline feature film, Spinning Into Butter, based on Rebecca Gilman's play.
Set on a college campus in Vermont, the story explores the dangers of both racism and political correctness in America today in a manner that is at once profound, disturbing. darkly comic, and deeply cathartic. Rebecca Gilma challenges our preconceptions about race relations, writing of a liberal dean of students named Sarah Daniels who investigates the pinning of anonymous, clearly racist letters on the door of one of the college's few African American students. The stunning discovery that there is a virulent racist on campus forces Sarah, along with other faculty members and students, to explore her feelings about racism, which lead to surprising discoveries and painful insights.
