Description: The 2018 Green Bay Film Festival continues with the Weekend Extravaganza Friday Night Films - "The Little Princess" & "The Drawer Boy". SYNOPSIS: The Little Princess - Sometimes hope appears when you least expect it. A man going through a deep depression has a chance and random encounter with a little girl that reminds him of the beauty and simplicity of life. SYNOPSIS: The Drawer Boy - 1972. Miles, a young theatre actor from Toronto, arrives in rural Ontario at the home of Angus and Morgan, two aging bachelor farmers. Miles stays with the two farmers in order to gather stories about rural life and write a play abut it. All three of their lives are irrevocably altered when art attempts to imitate life and the line between truth and fiction is crossed. Although the clash between rural shrewdness and urban naiveté initially makes this film a comedy, the story ultimately evolves into a compelling drama of loyal friendship, lost love and abiding devotion. The Drawer Boy makes us aware of the small yet important difference between truth and fiction. And in doing so it exposes history not as a faithful documentation of the past but merely as a collective agreement of values.
