Writer and director Adriana Trigiani brings her best-selling novel Big Stone Gap to the screen in a heartwarming tale of family secrets and self-discovery in a small coal-mining town during the late 1970s. Shot entirely on location in the real Big Stone Gap, Trigiani’s hometown, the film captures the joys, the tribulations and the rewards of life in the Appalachian Mountains. The award-winning ensemble includes Ashley Judd, Patrick Wilson, Whoopi Goldberg, John Benjamin Hickey, Jane Krakowski with Anthony LaPaglia and Jenna Elfman.

Join Ashley Judd and Bridges Domestic Violence Center at a pre-screening of the movie at Carmike Thoroughbred 20 Theater, 633 Frazier Drive in Franklin, Tennessee on Tuesday, September 22, 2015 at 6PM.  The movie is set to release to the public October 9th.

About Bridges

Bridges Domestic Violence Center is the only domestic violence shelter in Williamson County. Our not-for-profit organization is dedicated to assisting victims of physical, mental and sexual abuse. If you have experienced domestic violence or your children have witnessed domestic violence, we recognize that the decisions you face are difficult ones. Our role is to provide a safe place for you to make those decisions and to regain control of your life.

We provide a 24-hour crisis hotline staffed by people who can help immediately, an outreach support group, and shelter at an undisclosed location. Our programs do not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, religion, class, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, age or marital status.

Our services are supported by local law enforcement officials, government grants, corporations, foundations and individual contributions. We are a member agency of United Way of Williamson County.

Our staff and volunteers are dedicated to the belief that no man, woman or child, under any circumstance, should be subjected to domestic abuse.
