CT FILM FEST REVIEW: “War Eagle, Arkansas”


War Eagle, Arkansas” is a quiet, simple drama about two high school buddies in the smallest of small towns.

One boy is called “Wheels,” a wise-cracking clown with cerebral palsy. The other is Enoch, a talented baseball player afflicted with a stutter.

They’re both trapped in their own ways, but Enoch’s talent is giving him the option to move on and move out . . . but he doesn’t want to leave his friend behind.

The movie, which features Brian Dennehy in a supporting role, is bolstered by strong performances, especially Dan McCabe as Wheels.

WHERE AND WHEN: Heirloom Arts Theater, Saturday, 8 p.m. and Wednesday, 7:30 p.m. at the Palace
