Abstract

The lengths to which Hollywood goes to enhance the "reality" of Maine towns--even re-creating its re-creation of downtown Southwest Harbor inside a sugar beet warehouse in Toronto (for the 1998 made-for-TV movie series "Storm of the Century"), can mystify and even disappoint locals. Sometimes Mainers themselves play into the stereotypes. At other times, as in the movie, "In the Bedroom," shot in the Camden/Rockland area, filmmakers go the extra mile to achieve realism. A discussion of movies shot in Maine and the benefits and disadvantages to the (usually) coastal Maine towns that are used as locations.
