Arts & Entertainment ‘Paradise Falls’ at Jackson library

To celebrate Jackson County Public Library’s second anniversary, Friends of the Library will present “Paradise Falls” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 11.

The 1997 movie, filmed mainly in Jackson County, was the brainchild of Jackson County native Sean Bridgers, right, and was directed and produced by another Jackson County native, Nick Searcy, who also stars as the legendary outlaw Jake Kyler.

Set in the Depression Era, “Paradise Falls” tells how a young tobacco farmer, played by Bridgers, is persuaded by his best friend, played by Christopher Berry, left, to turn to crime to save the family farm from foreclosure.

Due to the visual violence, the movie is rated PG13.
