Movie Info

Based on a true story, a small-town paramedic named Susette Kelo never expected to be at the center of one of our nation's most controversial legal battles. She leaves a bad marriage, and starts over in a new town. She buys a rundown cottage with a gorgeous water view. She fixes it up and paints it pink. Then she discovers powerful politicians want to bulldoze her blue-collar neighborhood for the benefit of pharmaceutical giant Pfizer. Susette emerges as the reluctant leader of her neighbors in an epic battle that goes all the way to the Supreme Court and helps millions of Americans protect their homes.

Critic Reviews for Little Pink House

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (10)

"Litte Pink House" feels like it's only ever checking off the requisite moments of civic outrage, while failing to connect with viewers on a level that's deeper than the average made-for-TV issue-of-the-week movie.

May 31, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

A workmanlike dramatization of a controversial Supreme Court decision that never quite makes a case for itself.

May 10, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Keener's performance keeps the film grounded even as blunt scenes of the opposing camp's machinations flirt with soap opera villainy.

May 3, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The cast works diligently, and Keener is scrappy but calm throughout, with a convincing naturalism as a woman with tremendous strength and a powerful belief in civil rights.

The movie often seems to have a hard time making up its mind whether it wants to be The Insider or Mean Girls.

April 20, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

If the story's political and personal nuances have been a bit flattened in Balaker's script, keeping proceedings in a movie-of-the-week register, this "Little Pink House" nonetheless retains what property developers would call good bones.
