Indy Film: "Baby, It's Cold Outside"

If you want some light-hearted amusement and appreciate understated regional ethnic humor, I recommend this one. It's set mostly in Maine, where their Downeast dialect needed subtitles at times. The Mainers can be as quaint as the upper mid-westerners who are gently parodied on "The Prairie Home Companion" and "Fargo" and writer-producer Pam E. Ross gives them good exposure here. She also starred in it and hired many real Maine folk, who essentially played themselves. There is sort of a plot to it, but that's just a side issue. It was released in 2004 and I saw it on a Comcast cable series called "Independent's Day", from the Film Baby distribution company. It reminded me of the type of production you often see from Canada, where they seem to savor such things. Like, "The Red Green Show", for example.

There's information about it on under the Comedy category and this has a link to its own website, where a trailer is posted. I can't seem to find any other references on the Web to Pam E. Ross, but she's cute and clever and must surely have done other things in film-making. The very prolific songwriter/singer Jimmy Fastiggi wrote and performed almost all the very good pieces of music in the movie.
