Eden Court (coming soon)
Based on a screenplay written by Murphy Guyer and originally produced for the
stage in New York and other cities, Eden Court is a coming-of-age dramatic
comedy. Set to the backdrop of minor league baseball, the film tells the story of
a former “can’t miss” pitcher named Shroeder Duncan who awakens on his 30th
birthday and decides it’s time to search for a more meaningful life than offered by
the trailer-park existence to which he and his beloved wife, Bonnie, are confined.
Tom Lennon (Reno 911 Miami), Kimberly Williams-Paisley (Father of the Bride,
We are Marshall and According to Jim), Stephnie Weir (MadTV) and Christian
Finnegan (Chappelle’s Show) star in the film. The film is a great blend of
hilarious comedy and sweet romance.
An injury ruined Shroeder's (Tom Lennon) promising career in professional
baseball and his choices in life have since failed to grant him the "American
Dream" he desires. Shroeder settles for work at a minor league baseball park as
a groundskeeper and becomes increasingly frustrated as other players achieve
the success he always wanted. Inspired by an infomercial, Shroeder decides to
pack up, leave his wife and job, and start the search for his "American Dream" -
in Australia! But before Shroeder can leave, Bonnie (Kimberly Williams-Paisley),
his good-natured and devoted wife, Barb (Stephnie Weir), Bonnie's best friend
and resident alcoholic, and Carl (Christian Finnegan), Shroeder's best friend and
co-worker, prove to be too disruptive of a force in Shroeder's plan. Ultimately, he
and Bonnie rediscover what makes life meaningful at home in their trailer park of
paradise called Eden Court.

In 1971, Jim McCormick (James Caviezel) has left the dangers of hydroplane boat racing behind him in favor of a wife, a family and a job as the town's air-conditioner repairman. But deep inside, the dream of piloting the community-owned Miss Madison to victory in the Gold Cup, the sport's most celebrated race, lives on. Sadly like the town of Madison itself, the Miss Madison is a shadow of her former self. Several years old and in constant disrepair, the boat has become the laughing stock of hydroplane racing. And the town has no money to fix it especially in light of the dwindling river-supported economy. To make matters worse, Madison's competitors on the circuit have rich corporate sponsorships, top-of-the-line equipment, round-the-clock maintenance and huge, well-paid crews.
But when Madison, on a fluke, is offered the chance to host the prestigious Gold Cup championship, it's too much for McCormick to resist. Even though nobody else on the circuit wants them to do it - or thinks they can pull it off - McCormick rallies the community and together they show the rest of the world just how far drive, ingenuity and passion will take you.
